COMPLIMENTS OF THE SEASON

Christmas is the day, in the calendar of Christendom, that marks the birth of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.

It is a commemoration that connects the world to love, selflessness, sacrifice, and solidarity; which are the virtues that Christ unambiguously propagated.

Jesus’ message of salvation speaks to the essence of both spiritual deliverance and earthly redemption.

It is a constant reminder that humanity will have a more peaceful existence if people of the world rededicate themselves to friendship, kindness, and compassion.

People have been through so much in 2020, including navigating the snares of the deadly novel Covid19 pandemic.

At Christmas the world needs love. This is the spirit we have to imbibe to heal all that is broken in our world.

Merry Christmas to all our compatriots and the rest of humanity.
