Every Christmas is the time to remind ourselves how God who loved us so much and did not want us to perish, sent His only begotten Son, born of a Virgin Mary, to redeem us from our sins and bondage. We therefore celebrate this Christmas to share the love, the joy and the peace in our families, neighbourhoods, and among our friends. By doing so we realize that we, all of us are the children of God, called to experience deep down in our hearts the same love, joy and unity among us.
Let us then as Brothers and sisters in the Lord spread this message to the people we meet during this Christmas Season.
