I am very happy to wish you and your family members PEACE and JOY of Christmas. When some parts of the world is reeling under violence and bloodshed, it is essential that we think about this human tragedy and pray for those suffering; and also pray that people may solve all the problems by recognizing the other as brother and sister. Christmas is the feast which celebrates the birth of Jesus in this world. God chose to build a bridge between humanity and Godhead through the Incarnation of his only Son, and invites us to build bridges and not erect barriers. Then real Peace is possible and there will be Joy and Happiness in the lives of people. Let us also work towards making this world a better place where everyone is recognized as a brother and a sister and where there is harmony leading to true peace.
