It’s Day One of a brand new year – a rare occasion in which the 1st of January falls on a Sunday. This year, New Year’s Day takes on a new meaning for me too, as I learnt from today’s mass that the 1st of January is also the day Christians celebrate the naming of Jesus.
I left the service with two things. The first, is the significance of living up to one’s name. As you grow up, do remember the meaning of your Chinese name, and periodically review if you are living in a manner that is consistent with the name that your mother and I have thoughtfully chosen for you.
The second, is the powerful lyrics of the final hymn that we sang today, which begins with … “Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me.” Enjoy this beautiful version and may the voice of this little girl inspire you to BE the beginning of Peace on earth!
