I cordially wish believers of the world a Merry Christmas! More than a billion people around the world celebrate their main holiday. On this day, the celebration and the peace of the Christmas night come to all hearts, filling them with the joy of faith and love.

This glorious holiday brings hope and strengthens the belief in a better future. It symbolizes the triumph of spirituality and celebrates the noble ideals of humanism and mercy.

Today, the light of the star of Bethlehem carrying the great news will enter every house. Today, the main prayer to God is for the life-giving love to renew hearts and the world to become more kind and pure.
Let well-being and prosperity, trust and understanding dwell in each house. I wish you good health, prosperity and success in all your endeavors!
