(COLOMBO, LANKAPUVATH) –It was to bring the message of humbleness that Jesus Christ decided to be born in a manager. Therefore let us resolve to extend love and compassion to needy people leading helpless lives and children undergoing untold suffering during this Christmas,Colombo Archbishop His Eminence Malcolm Cardinal Ranjith said in a special Christmas message.
“Let us honour others. Love people’s lives and share our happiness and joy with others eschewing selfishness. Let us remember that man’s value depended on his conduct rather than on his riches and material possessions.
“While enjoying Christmas, I request you to desist from causing destruction to the environment and using polythene for decorations.
In the name of Jesus Christ, I request you to honour children and uplift them with love and care and desist from causing harm to them whoever they many be because that is the best sacrifice you could make in the name of child Jesus Christ.
“Wish you a Merry Christmas. May the blessings of Jesus Christ he with you,” the Cardinal said.
