President Mahinda Rajapaksa in his Christmas message said, the efforts to free the people from poverty have been appreciated by Christians and those of all other faiths.
.
“The purpose of celebrating Christmas is to enshrine the message of peace and love in one’s heart. and spread the message of love and compassion towards the poor and peace among all people,” the President said.

“Our great commitment in the recent past to promote solidarity among communities is in keeping with the teaching of Christ to ‘love thy neighbour’.

“Christ taught that, whosoever shall receive a child in my name receives me. Christian tradition holds that the three kings came to worship the new born child guided by the light of a star that marked his birth. Similarly, we must bring the joyous message of Christmas closer to the hearts of our children, thus we will be able to come closer to the peace and love of Christ through Christmas.

“I wish a Happy Christmas to all Sri Lankans and citizens of the world who celebrate the birth of Christ this Christmas.” President said. (Daily Mirror online)

    when i was a small, I always listen what other say. Once I grew up, I always watch what other do. By looking at your action, the society can learn what kind of moral you have it.
