I wish a beginning 2013 blessed by God

In this last day of 2012, my prayer is for all of you,
I share with you the words of a song composed by Westlife group





When I am down and, oh my soul, so weary;
When troubles come and my heart burdened be;
Then, I am still and wait here in the silence,
Until you come and sit awhile with me.
You raise me up, so I can stand on mountains;
You raise me up, to walk on stormy seas;
I am strong, when I am on your shoulders;
You raise me up... To more than I can be.
in this new year, may you say these words to God,
or to the brothers who lives with you.
greetings to all of you at the end of this year  
and i wish a beginning 2013 blessed by God


...and the best wish I can aspect for you is that those who live with you can say these words refer to you

as a sign of gratitude for your evangelical witness

that every day you are giving with your Franciscan life.

Fr, Carmelo
