Merry Christmas

“Christmas is the privileged opportunity to contemplate the meaning and value of our existence. The nearness of this solemnity helps us to reflect, on the one hand, on the dramatic nature of a history in which human beings, wounded by sin, are perennially seeking happiness and a reason for living and dying; on the other hand, it exhorts us to contemplate the merciful goodness of God who has come to met humanity that He might communicate the saving Truth to us directly and make us to participate in His friendship and His life”.
Pope Benedict XVI Vatican City, 17th Dec 2008 (VIS)
