The Circumcision of our Lord, God and Saviour Jesus Christ

It seems to me appropriate that the Feast of the Circumcision falls on New Years Day. Both represent new beginnings.

Circumcision on the eight day, the type and shadow of baptism, demonstrates our our new life in Christ. We even make resolutions, such as saying "I do" to the question, "Dost thou renouce Satan and all his Angels, and all his works, and all his service, and all his pride?"

How often do you see that on a list of New Years resolutions? You would only need that one resolution and the rest would take care of itself.
