Three Days into the New Year
Statistically, that means most people have caved in on their new years resolutions by now, since 2 out of 3 people break their resolution within 48 hours.
The take away is to make better resolutions, resolutions you can easily keep. This video explains how simply this can be done:
Okay, I am not advocating complacency — raising the bar to walk effortlessly underneath. I am issuing a challenge for this new year: to raise the bar for life in 2012. This is the year to make a pro-life resolution.
If you’re looking to be inspired, LifeNews.com has a great list of pro-life resolutions, specifically for 2012. Here is an sampling from the article, New Year’s Resolution: 10 Pro-Life Things You Can Do in 2012.
Every year, people make New Year’s resolutions for things – like quitting smoking, losing weight, exercising more, eating right…and so on. While I certainly support all of these types of resolutions (even if they are not kept), I wanted to challenge everyone to some resolutions that can help end the abortion holocaust.
I know many of you who are reading this are already sacrificing so much for the cause of the babies; you already go above and beyond what most others do. But this year is different. This is the beginning of the 40th year of legalized abortion in America, and I believe we need to raise the bar.
You can read the 10 tips for raising the bar this year at LifeNew.com. Here are some more ideas I’d like to offer.
- Carry your cross at the March for Life in Washington DC (it’s 20 days away).
- Can’t make the trip to DC this year? Be there in spirit and spend an hour in adoration before the Blessed Sacrament on January 23rd.
- Sign up for weekly Eucharistic adoration for the unborn at a local parish. If you don’t have it at your parish, ask your pastor if you can doing it.
- Explain your reasons for being pro-life to someone who thinks abortion should be legal.
- Finally, here’s a challenging one, pick one day a week to fast and pray for the end of legalized abortion in this country.
Upping the challenge, I would like to invite you to share your ideas, plans, or commitments with us in the combox below.
