This is my favorite photo of Pope Francis which I grabbed from Time Magazine’s Instagram account almost 2 years ago and saved in my Iphone photos. While browsing on Facebook early this morning, I stumbled upon this compilation of 10 of the Pope’s most memorable quotes in the form of New Year’s resolutions.
I stopped believing in New Year’s resolution since… I can’t remember. They are the most difficult to attain and only remembered when the year is about to end. As my friend Francis (not the Pope) would say, the best New Year’s resolution is not to have one because it is the easiest to keep.
Here’s the Pope Francis list. I hope this will guide us not just this year 2015 but everyday of our lives
- Don’t gossip.
- Finish your meals.
- Make time for others.
- Choose the “more humble” purchase.
- Meet the poor “in the flesh”.
- Stop judging others.
- Befriend those who disagree.
- Make commitments, such as marriage.
- Make it a habit to “ask the Lord”.
- Be happy.
God bless us all.
