CHRISTMAS AND NEW YEAR’S MESSAGE BY ARCHPRIEST Mgr CARMELO REFALO War is Over……If you want   It is one of the most important times of the year for Christians, when the story of a child born in a humble manger in Betlehem is shared and celebrated in the churches and homes throughout the world. The arrival of this year’s Christmas season in the wake of Friday November 13th attacks on Paris and its aftermath holds a special promise for the yearning for good news in a sad and fearful society. The message of Christmas is the triumph of life, goodness and love over death, evil and hate. Third World War?! Happy Christmas…war is over is a song written by John Lennon and Yoko Onu a song released in the year 1971. Love, joy and peace are the ingredients for a wonderful Christmas. To be true hate and fears are the day to day ingredients. This reminds me that the small infant’s hands in the manger of Betlehem were later nailed to a rugged wooden cross. Pope Francis’ proposal for the celebration of an Extraordinary Jubilee of Mercy reminds us that those same hands today lovingly reach down and pick us up during these difficult times. War on Christmas?! Jesus is the reason for the Christmas season. It is true the Christmas celebration becomes more and more an observance devoid of it’s original spiritual meaning. Christmas is under attack as this sacred festivity is loosing it’s spiritual core and becoming little more than a souless consumeristic feast. Today’s event organised by the Xagħra Local Coucil in the annual Christmas Concert with the participation of the Chorus Urbanus Choir and its Director Mro. John Galea, gives us a unique opportunity to experience a moment of serenity and peace inspired through the art of voices and music. War is over…if you want ! May our hearts be lifted in praise for the gift of Jesus, the King of Peace and the Joy he brings in our lives, accompany us all year round. May God fill our lives with love, joy and peace. Conclude with John Lennon song’s lyrics: “A merry Christmas and a happy New Year. Let’s hope it’s a good one without any fear. War is over if you want. War is over now”! May God bless each and everyone and may our dreams for a peaceful society come true! Fr. Carmel...
