Happy New Year from Marie and me!
With this greeting, I leave you a prayer from Helen Steiner Rice:
God Grant us Hope and Faith and Love
Hope for a world grown cynically cold,
Hungry for power and greedy for gold—
Faith to believe when,within and without,
There’s a nameless fear in a world of doubt—
Love that is bigger than race or creed
To cover the world and fulfill each need…
God, Grant these gifts to all troubled hearts
As the old year ends and the new year starts.
- David Horton, Grand Knight
