This year, too, we celebrate the birth of the Son of God with joy, faith, hope and love. The spirit of goodwill, peace and care for our loved ones, which fills this season, gives us hope that the infinite light of the Almighty will guide our lives, and remind us to strive for humaneness and togetherness, following the path of the God’s law. My family and I wish you to spend this great Holy Holiday, the day of joy for all Christians, in peace and joy. Peace on Earth, Christ is born!”
