Happy new year!

Happy new year!

Ended the year 2011, full of so many things here in Bozoum!

The agricultural fair in February, the work of building the middle school and high school St.Augustine (from January to October), Easter with his baptism, the beginning of the rainy season, with the agricultural year, the work in the schools, the of our clinic, the opening of the dental office, the beginning in the Listening Centre of Caritas, the opening of the first branch of the Savings Bank, the beginning of school in September, and the opening of the catechism, and the feast for the
40th of arrival of the Carmelites in Bozoum, and finally Christmas!

How can we not thank the Lord?

It is true that there have been difficulties and problems ....

But it is also true that for a Christian, a new year is simply a new time of grace that God gives us ...

and then, Happy New Year!

and a gift: the words of the Pope's Vespers yesterday, 31 December:

Since the Day of the Lord’s Nativity, the fullness of time has reached us. So there is no more room for anxiety in the face of time that passes, never to return; now there is room for unlimited trust in God, by whom we know we are loved, for whom we live and to whom our life is directed as we await his definitive return. Since the Saviour came down from heaven, man has ceased to be the slave of time that passes to no avail, marked by toil, sadness and pain. Man is son of a God who has entered time so as to redeem it from meaninglessness and negativity, a God who has redeemed all humanity, giving it everlasting love as a new perspective of life.
