I shall never forget this Christmas. I had a chance and grace to participate in the nativity scene screenplay called “Messiah came into the world”. We, children and youth of the bright room Svitlytsia, celebrated those holidays together like one big family. We had been looking forward to that day, because for about four weeks we had heard it day after day that we should prepare our hearts to Messiah’s coming. So we did try through our prayer and sacrifice to welcome Our Savior into our homes.

We wish you to celebrate these holidays with joy and in peace, close to the Newborn Baby. May He shine His light upon you and let you understand the plan of salvation, which is not the way we would expect, but begins with a lack of place, a poor shed, a crib, with ordinary shepherds, with wise men’s coming and with the escape from  Herod… May Mary teach us how to take incomprehensible events in obedience and in faith.

May Our Lord bless you!

Christmas 2017, Balta.
