Christmas Greetings

The birth of Jesus Christ, Savior of the universe is being celebrated all over the world with much enthusiasm and fanfare on December 25th. Nevertheless we should admit that we are living in a world that has not yet fully  understood the message of the Savior. The angels proclaimed, “Good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people” (Luke 2:10). The current situation in the world suggests that joy and satisfaction only to some but sorrow and suffering to many. It also suggests that right to live in this world is guaranteed only to those with might,  lobbies and wealth.

If the message we share during the season stay just on the  greeting cards we send out, this unhealthy situation will only continue ever after. Jesus came to this world as the  incarnate   message  of  love  of  God  towards  His creation. We believe in a Lord who was the messenger, the message and who worked out the message as well. He  called  Himself  ‘Son  of  Man’  and  hence  He  is  the model and pre-taste of each one of us becoming truly
‘child of God’ (Gal. 3:26). This is our mission: being a daughter or son of God, become the message and work out that message  in  our families, in our society, in our Church and in the world we  live in. Let us pray to the Incarnate Love of God for His blessings  on us that we
may become truly what we should. I wish you and your dear ones a blessed Christmas. May God bless you and keep you safe and happy all through the New Year and ever after.

Yours in our Lord
