On the threshold of a new year I humbly ask for the grace of courage for my people , for humanity , for this wonderful big wide world . There were never such opportunities for continuing education, for teaching ourselves , for developing , for formulating our common dreams , and achieving those with faith , hard work ! Give us courage our God, so that we do not stop short ! That our human half-heartedness , our fears , do not crush our soaring, flight towards Infinity .
