'During this new year I resolve
to begin a new life.
I do not know what will
happen to me during this year.
But I abandon myself entirely to You,
my God. And my aspirations
and all my affections will be for You.
I feel so weak, dear Jesus,
but with Your help I hope and resolve to live a different life; that is, a life closer to You.'
St. Gemma Galgani
