Homily given at Christian Brothers College High School, Town and Country, Missouri.

At the beginning of a new civil year, the focus can be on making resolutions. More than that, the focus can be simply on our own effort to accomplish these resolutions. We must work harder. We must put in more effort. We must do it ourselves. In today’s first reading from Saint John, we learn the most important truth. It all starts with God. We can love because God first loved us. So seek his grace.
