Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (Monday, 01/05/2015, Gaudium Press) Cardinal Orani João Tempesta, Archbishop of Rio de Janeiro, in his New Year’s message he reminded the faithful that when we reach the end of a year, “it is always a good opportunity to think about our dreams and hope that things will go well in the new year. I wish you a happy new year, a happy year, a good year.”
“Basically, people want everything to be renewed, to be happy in the time which is given to them. We look at the past year and we see that we had ups and downs, good times and not very good, “he said.
Later he recalled that all of us must wish to “make every day a day of God, of God’s presence in our lives. Should every moment of our lives be lived in the presence of the Lord. “
When we wish a happy new year to someone else, he said, “may we wish him a new time, many more days, a new opportunity to make a better day, and a better day is when you bring God into your life, into your heart, into your attitudes, into your work, into your words, in all that you do. “
“I wish you that 2015 is a year full of God’s grace in every minute of your life. A happy year” said Archbishop Orani. (LMI)
