Dear Parishioners,

Happy New Year! I hope that your time off, your vacation, your time to reflect on these past holy days has been one that has enlivened your heart.

New Year's Resolution
Many people start of each year with some kind of resolution. I've recommended to everyone to consider putting gratefulness at the top of that list of candidates for a resolution. As adults, we can become so bitter and gruff that we begin to lose our sense of awe, wonder, and basic innocence. We can become critical and start to notice the ugly and sinful things in each other instead of looking for the bright and good things. By being so negative, we can darken our intellect as well as spirit. As Christians, we need to choose thankfulness, choose gratefulness. Spend some time today and ponder on these things. Make a resolution to be a more loving and grateful person to those around you. You might just be surprised to see others changing because of it.

MacWorld Expo and the Starquest Production Network
This week, Apple will be revealing their new hardware and software. It is sure to be a hit. It is expected that Apple will finally begin shipping a new product that was initially called iTV which will serve up one's media in iTunes wirelessly to the theater system in another room. The SQPN has been preparing for this and hopes to be one of the first Catholic networks to begin serving up quality media for the faithful. As you can see below, the SQPN met their goal. So, keep your ears and eyes peeled for new things about to happen. I will update this blog as I begin to learn about these things. Additionally, I will endeavor to update my site with reports from MacWorld Expo.

Blessings in Christ,

Fr. William Holtzinger
