[COLUMN] Happy New Year of the ‘Wabbit’ 2023!

THIS Sunday, January 22 is, as most people know, Chinese New Year of the Rabbit for 2023. The New Year is also using the element of water; therefore, it’s the year of the water rabbit, which Elmer Fudd calls “Wabbit”. Elmer Fudd is a cartoon character, who’s mostly involved with “Bugs Bunny” and Fudd calls him the pesky “Wabbit.” In any event, we have a new year to look forward to.

It’s time to get rid of your accumulated debts this new year and start fresh or reorganize. Life is so much more enjoyable without handing over your paycheck to MasterCard and Visa, don’t you think so? And even Walt Disney filed for Chapter 7 bankruptcy relief twice before his business became wildly successful, and Milton Hershey also filed for Chapter 7 once before his chocolate empire became the biggest in the world. So make no mistake about it, there’s a right time to get rid of accumulated oppressive debt, and this year of the Wabbit is it.

Kidding aside, I would like for us to pray to the Sacred Heart of Jesus to ask for His infinite divine mercy for each one of us, and the whole world to have a good and peaceful year. Pray this 3 x “O Blood and Water, which gushed forth from the Heart of Jesus as a fount of mercy for us, I trust in You! Then pray to our Eternal Father, that we offer to You the Body and Blood, soul and Divinity of Your dearly beloved Son, Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, in atonement for our sins and those of the whole world.” Follow this with “For the Sake of His sorrowful Passing, please have mercy on us and on the whole world.”

I would like to pray for the end of Ukraine war this year, with a victory for Ukraine. It’s no secret that Jesus is not happy with Russia having banned Him from its borders. And waging an unjust war with a false basis is just wrong. I pray that Putin will see the error of his ways and just stop what he’s doing. I pray that Jesus will take care and protect the Ukranians and give them a righteous victory without plunging us into a world war that benefits no one except the devil himself.

Further, I would like to pray that we turn the corner and lay this COVID virus to rest and let it be just an endemic. I pray for the end of the pandemic.
