Happy New Year 2010 ( Joy & Optimism of St. John Bosco)

As the year begins, I wish everyone conservative and liberals alike to fill their hearts with joy and optimism.  "Let nothing bother you,"  St. John Bosco used to say.  The Salesian Spirituality focuses in God's Providence and refuses to be discouraged by hardships and set backs.  It is also based on St. Francis de Sales optimistic humanism that believes in the innate goodness of people without ignoring his weaknesses.  As St. Paul exhorts, "Rejoice in the Lord always" (Phil 4:4) because the "fruit of God's spirit is love, joy, peace..."( Gal 5:22 ) and this is the foundation of our hope.
