Wishing you all a Very Happy & Blessed New Year 2013!

If you’re thinking about changing your life for the better, want to get back to living and walking this life with God, start today and take the first step. Its not hard to change your life, because with God all things are possible.

Some ways to start changing your life –

  1. Make an act of consecration to Our Lord by willing a change in your life and surrender your life into His hands.
  2. Visit your local catholic church and have a chat with the parish priest. The priest is more than happy to help you.
  3. Live a prayerful life. You can’t do it without prayer. Awake each  morning and say a short prayer of thanksgiving to Our Lord. You can pray the Our Father, Hail Mary, Glory Be, if that is all you can remember. It just takes 1 minute!
  4. Try and make a daily timetable of adding prayer during different times of the day – on rising in the morning, mid-day at 12 with the Angelus, 3pm Divine Mercy prayer or chaplet (the chaplet will take 10 mins), night prayers before retiring to bed. You can add short supplications during the day ‘All for Thee O Sacred Heart of Jesus’, or ‘Thy will be done’, ‘Thank you Lord’, ‘Jesus I trust in Thee’.
  5. Rosary.
  6. Daily Mass. Some churches have early morning Mass at 7am or 8am. Some churches have mid-day service in the cities or evening Mass for people who finish work or school.
  7. Eucharistic Adoration. Spend a few quiet moments with the Lord Jesus and see how much love and Grace you receive into your heart to help you live your faith daily and strength to carry on through trials.
  8. Receive the Sacraments of Confession and Holy Communion regularly.
  9. Join church groups to live your faith more actively and get support from fellow christian to grow stronger in your faith.
  10. Give up any sin in your life and make a daily examination of conscience. Some people say they don’t sin, but if you examine your life you will find some things that can change. Things like gossip, slander against your neighbour, you pass on news about someone which you have heard from someone else but haven’t seen yourself, swearing, lying, laziness, addictions. If we don’t correct these little imperfections in our life, they will lead to other worse sins.
  11. If you can’t find any local church, there are plenty of online christian websites which have an abundance of resources. http://www.ewtn.com/ is a great catholic tv and online website.
