The Precipice of a Year

Happy New Year everyone! Yes - this is one of the great celebrated days of the year.  It is known as Feastday.

The Saint of the Day for Thursday, December 31st 2015 is St. Sylvester.  He lived in 312 in Rome.

In this same post, it says that Saint Michael the Archangel isn't a saint, but rather he is an angel.   He is an archangel in Judaism, Christianity and Islam.  I don't know how to distinguish between an angel and archangel, though.

When the Year 2000 turned over we watched all the celebrations around the world.  Remembering that, I looked up where the other side of the globe is in the countdown.  New Zealand has kicked off the New Year's Eve celebrations. This made me think of  Marshall McLuhan who told us we would be living in a global village. Here's a quote of his that seems to be relevant to this blog:

"We shape our tools and thereafter our tools shape us."
~March McLuhan
