PARISH MAGAZINE JANUARY, 1910. THE! NEW YEAR. We have again the privilege and the pleasure of wishing all our readers and friends a Happy and a Prosperous New Year, and it is a great satisfaction to us to be able each year to offer our best wishes to an increasing number. We record our thankfulness to those faith¬ ful workers for their sustained efforts in the interest of the Magazine, some of whom are continually adding to their dis¬ tribution list. When we think of the past our first thoughts are those of gratitude to Almighty God for all the blessings and privileges which we have continued to enjoy, and our next thought is of those into whose heart He has put the desire and to whom He has given the capacity to do something for His sake in the work of His Church. May such workers ever be on the increase amongst us, and may Ave all in our several, positions co-operate more and more in all good work. The need of work ig ever increasing, but as we go on we learn that there is no joy in life greater than doing faithfully according to our ability the good work to which the Pro¬ vidence of God and the guidance of His Holy Spirit directs us. May He who has been so good to us in the past direct, guide and strengthen us during the year which, by His Mercy, we have been per¬ mitted to enter. * * *• CHRISTMAS.
