I like New Year’s Day, Ash Wednesday, and the First Sunday of Advent. I’m hopelessly drawn to the promise of a new start, to the undying hope that things will get better. I like making resolutions.
- In 2015 I’ll arrive a bit early for liturgy (instead of rushing in at the last minute, or a bit after the liturgy has begun) and give myself time to say the Serenity Prayer.
- In 2015 I’ll be more grateful for the good work of others – celebrants, musicians, etc. – and less critical.
- In 2015 I’ll think about the texts of hymns and not just the melody and harmonization.
- In 2015 I’ll never, ever be distracted during the liturgy. (No?)
How about you? Do you make any liturgical resolutions? What are they?
