The Jesuit Theologian Ganzalez Faus, when analyzinf the 21st century said, "In the western countries, thanks to the scientific and technological progress of the last centuries, and also thanks to the evolution of ideas, we begin to think that human life can be, although limited, a happy and agreable experience."

Calasanz expressed a similar thought through his genial insight,

"Remember that, if children from their early years are instucted deligently in piety and learning, it must undoubtedly be expected that their whole life will be a happy one."

His recommendations about happiness were many,

"Do not entertain melancholy thoughts which can oppress the heart and distub the mind. Rather, think about things that can bring you happiness."

"Try to be happy. If you combine patience with joy, you will accomplish works worthy of great merit."

"Remain always happy in the Lord and, if something should occur, tell me, and I will console you."
