From Pope Francis’ message for New Year 2019
Do not forget that your life is the greatest enterprise in the world.
Only you can stop it from going bust.
Many appreciate you, admire you and love you.
Remember that to be happy is not to have a sky without a storm, a road without accidents, work without fatigue, relationships without disappointments.
To be happy is to find strength in forgiveness, hope in battles, security in the stage of fear, love in discord. It is not only to enjoy the smile, but also to reflect on the sadness. It is not only to celebrate the successes, but to learn lessons from the failures. … And when you make a mistake, start all over again. For only then will you be in love with life.
…You will find that to be happy is not to have a perfect life. .. Use your losses to train patience. Use your mistakes to sculptor serenity. …Use obstacles to open windows of intelligence.
Never give up …. Never give up on people who love you. Never give up on happiness, for life is an incredible show.
