The most beautiful time of the year is ahead of us. It is the time of kindness, forgiveness, and mercy. Let the festive atmosphere make us more optimistic, full of love, hope and faith.

May the newborn Jesus find a place in our hearts and bring grace and peace to our homes and families. I wish that the star of Bethlehem becomes a sign on our path to happiness.
