Dear students,

Rabindranath Tagore says “Every child born in this world brings the message that God is still in love with the world”

A few births have changed history, a few births have destroyed history, and a few births have coloured history, but it is the birth of Jesus which gave life to history. It is His birth which transformed the world into a holy place, a place where human beings would live in His own image and likeness.

Our world is a world where, on the one hand, we have come so close to one another that, at the click of a button, we can connect with persons in any part of the world, but on the other hand, we are becoming more and more distanced and estranged from one another, because we tend to highlight differences of colour, caste, creed and religion, rather than appreciate and understand what unites us.

Our world is a world which is all but physically destroyed, because of the greed of a few who have abused it for their own selfish ends. However, it is also a world in which people are becoming aware of the need to care for the environment and to treat the earth with respect it deserves.

It is in such a world that Jesus is born every Christmas Day. In order to meet Him, we need to go to Him; we need to bow down to humble ourselves, to walk in His way. Pope Francis says Let us allow the child in the manger to challenge us but let us also be challenged by all those “Children in today’s world who are lying not in a crib, caressed with affection by their mothers and fathers, but in squalid mangers that devour dignity”

So let us think of the millions of children who are enveloped in poverty and malnutrition, who cannot afford to go to school, who cannot have an access to basic necessities of life, let us lend a helping hand to them wherever possible to make this world a better place.

During this Christmas let us not be satisfied with angles, Santa clause or Christmas tree but like the shepherds seek him out, worship him like the wise men, and make a room for him in our hearts.

Dear children as a child Jesus grew in wisdom and knowledge under the guidance of his parents Joseph & Mary. He was obedient, kind and compassionate to everyone. I am sure during this pandemic, as you spend your days, with your parents, near and dear ones, you are helping them in their household work, being obedient to the elders and sincere in your studies. Praying for you and your families to be safe and seeking God’s protection during these days of the pandemic. Wishing you a very happy Christmas and a grace filled New Year 2021.
