Happy New Year!

 What You Do . . .

What you do, may you [always] do and never abandon.

But with swift pace, light step,

unswerving feet,

so that even your steps stir up no dust,

may you go forward

securely, joyfully, and swiftly,

on the path of prudent happiness,

not believing anything,

not agreeing with anything

that would dissuade you from this resolution

or that would place a stumbling block for you on the way,

so that you may offer your vows to the Most High

in the pursuit of that perfection

to which the Spirit of the Lord has called you.

*Saint Clare of Assisi from her second letter to Blessed Agnes of Prague
