"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever
believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." John 3:16
Dear Brothers and Sisters in Jesus Christ,
Let me wish all of you the tranquility and love at this Christmas in the
holy name of Jesus, the eternal son of God!
On the most Holy day when Jesus was born, saintly messengers sang the
glory of our Lord in the silence of Judean night and they proclaimed in
great reverence "This very day in David's town, a Saviour is born to you,
God's promised one, your Lord." Holy Bible records, ordinary shepherds
as the first to witness the arrival of our Lord. And today in the world we
live in, Christmas brings the true spirit that guides us to become men as
humble as those shepherds who witnessed the birth of the saviour. The
Christmas teaches us to own and learn from the humility of the shepherds
who gifted themselves to the Divine Child.
In our present day world, we have witnessed commercial clatter and
cultural down set among all sects of the society. Instead of loving and
caring each other, people tend to get involved in unhealthy competitions
and brawls. The Christmas should spread the divine light that the
message of our savior upholds in John 3:18, "Let us not love with words
or tongue but with actions and in truth"..
On this Christmas, I appeal all my beloved children, to reinforce your
love, the love to fellow people, the love to friends and foes, the love to the
entire humanity and the love to this world as a whole. By doing so, you
can aggravate your love for Jesus. Christmas is not just greeting cards
and luxurious celebrations. The real Christmas should focus more on
Jesus and the just way He has shown for the entire humanity.
The most treasured thought that Christmas evokes is that Jesus, the
Savior came not only to save you and me, but also to aid us renovate
humanity into a society where we have to be liberated, to be human, and
to be valued. These days, there are many people feel that they are without
help or aid, valueless and distressed. On this Christmas, we should also try to spread a ray of hope to those unprivileged group as well. "He who
despises his neighbor sins, but blessed is he who is kind to the needy".
Says 'Proverbs 19:17'
I wish all of you a very happy Christmas and pray from the bottom of my
heart to our Lord, that he may give you a life filled with virtues, this day
and for ever...
