My people, what is the meaning of Christmas for you? Rebirth, joy, party, exchange of gifts, the presence of “Bom Velhinho”, better known as Santa Claus, who brings a bag full of presents, to that super bright smile synonymous with renewal?

Well, I think it's much more than all this, the great opportunity for a beautiful reflection, to review concepts, seek to reconcile with people, reach out in a beautiful gesture of solidarity, remember that we didn't come into the world for a walk, but to make a difference, contributing with actions to make the world a better place.

The party to celebrate the birth of Jesus, his birth, in the hearts of each one of us.

The important thing is to follow the lessons left by the Illustrious Birthday Girl: love, help, understand, forgive, not judge, be our biggest commitment, faith in ourselves, extinguish something terrible from our life, prejudice, whatever it may be.

The world, believe me, focused on the precious lessons of Jesus, can be healthier, full of love, because love builds bridges, shortens distances, renews lives.

Christmas is a state of mind to be remembered, not only on December 25th, it's to be present in our thoughts, so that we don't let the child that we were “die” within us, we cultivate the pleasure of helping others, even because when we help with the desire to make a difference in someone's life, if we stop and listen to the “voice of the heart”, this gesture will make us full of happiness, for the simple fact that we will be giving a greater meaning to our existence.

Christmas should also serve for reflection: the best gift of this Party is to know that even with very little, if we want to honor the birthday boy, JESUS, just follow his teachings and one of his greatest lessons: love each other, like I love you.

Have a Merry Christmas, with lots of Peace and Love.
