“The object of a New Year is not that we should have a new year. It is that we should have a new soul and a new nose; new feet, a new backbone, new ears, and new eyes. Unless a particular man made New Year resolutions, he would make no resolutions. Unless a man starts afresh about things, he will certainly do nothing effective.”
– G.K. Chesterton

For those looking for an antiphon for Thanksgiving…
The text reads:
Dominus dixit ad me: vade et interfice a Turcia operretur, et servient in fratribus meis minimis. Et abii, et percussit Turcia, et praeparavit cibos fratribus meis servierim. Alleluia.
The Lord said to me: Go and kill a turkey, dress it, and serve to the least of my brethren. So I went and slew the turkey, dressed it and served to my brethren. Alleluia.

Thanks to my friend, Father Fluet…
