Cry of the Innocents of Peshawar



                                                ‘A Babe is born unto us’ is the hope of the season assuring faith in our hearts.

In reality there is the global mourning over the deadly attack in Peshawar taking the lives of 132 innocent children and others. Revenge was the target. Life for life.  Surely there is mourning in the families and the surrounding. Will the blood of these innocents bring about a change in the hearts of people concerned? The Lord of Peace will heed to their cry and wipe the horror of terrorism from the face of the earth. Let our leaders do their part, unite and face the challenge, is the earnest prayer that rises from the hearts of all the people of goodwill this Christmas.

The prince of peace is bringing about a much needed union between United Nations and Cuba, thanks to our Holy Father. So much of goodness is manifested in numerous ways, side by side we have the lashing out of atrocities as well. Good governance is possible only with the Prince of Peace. May the inner longing for peace, goodness and harmony in the hearts of all human beings unite together and create an abode for the True Prince of Peace to be celebrated these days and in the year to come.

       Wish you the joyous hope of Christ’s birth and the grace of a fruitful life in  2015
