There is no better way to approach the end of another calendar year than to reflect on the Eucharist. This gem comes from God's faithful servant,  Dr. Peter Kreeft: 

It's Not That Difficult To Be A Good Catholic

 “There is no gimmick. We just (1) believe everything God has told us through Church and Scripture, and (2) respond with adoration.

And then everything else that is necessary will follow – as it did for Mary, for whom there was ‘only one thing needful,’ and as it did for all the saints, and as it does for Mother Teresa’s Missionaries of Charity, who are simply the holiest and happiest people in this entire world.

than a thousand nuclear weapons, greater than the sun, greater than the Big Bang. It is the power of God released when the atom of the Trinity was split on the Cross and the explosion of redeeming blood came out. In Eucharistic Adoration we touch this power, which is the root of everything, for it is Christ the Pantocrator (i.e. ruler of the universe, creator and savior). We touch the candle of our souls to the fire of His passion, His passion for souls, and we catch the flame.”

(Peter Kreeft, Ph.D from Jesus Shock)
