Christmas is the most beautiful time of the year, the time of reflection on the values that guide us and help us in our lives. Christmas is the time, when we are together with our loved ones.

Let this magical time be full of peace, understanding, consent, reconciliation, optimism and joy. Let the boundless Love flowing from Bethlehem be present in our hearts every day.

May the coming year bring the most precious and valuable: faith, love, peace, strong health. Let it bring us the strength to take on new challenges and fulfil all our intentions and plans.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
