lthough I was unable to attend the canonization of our Founder, St. Gaetano Errico, in looking over the photos selected for this newsletter, it is so apparent the joy it brought forth. Perhaps it is another miracle, that many found a reason for happy celebration in a world that lately has little joy to give. Everyone forgot the economic woes, the differences between countries and people, to rejoice and give thanks. Perhaps it is the lesson our Founder would give to us his Missionaries and to all faithful . . . no matter what situation you find yourself in the midst of, don't let despair or fear take away your capacity to feel the joy of God's love. Our Founder preached always of God's infinite love, forgiveness and providence.

To know this is to feel joy most certainly,  
Father John, M.SS.CC.
