Holidays have begun in the west. It is clubbed with thanksgiving and Christmas. It is a welcome to a new year. Christmas which is celebrated all over the world is a festival of love and human solidarity. It is a call for a new life of love.


The year is coming to a close welcoming a new year. It is a period of thanksgiving and refreshing relationships. The festival that centers this season is Christmas, commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ. Jesus was born on this earth to share God's love with humanity and to show the way for happiness by sharing with others.

Two realities of Christmas

Christmas is based on two realities: Love and the Poor. Without these two Christmas and Christianity have no meaning. They are the essence of human life. Love of poor does not mean loving beggars or those who have no wealth with them. Modern world is very poorer in giving and receiving love than the actual poverty. People are starving without real love. Craving for love is the greatest poverty of life today. Commercialism and consumerism have made the world poor in love. Christmas is a reminder of this great need.

What hides these two realities?

These two realities of love and sharing with the poor are hidden by modern globalization and consumerism. In fact, families, communities and the entire world are facing the challenge from the consequences of these modern realities lack of love and lack of concern towards the poor in material and spiritual needs. Well off people move forward and progress. Whereas for the poor it means loss and disaster. Selfishness prevails everywhere and hides these two realities. As a result, families shatter, societies divide and rise in violence and countries clash in war.

Consumerism makes every heart go dry without love

Globalization promoted by commercialism and consumerism wipes out the attitude of love from every heart. It has made humanity more selfish. 'I' at the center is fed on pleasure. "What can I gain from this?" is the goal of every action. Profit is the ultimate motive of modern economy which makes individuals to be motivated by self interest and selfish ambitions. Greed has become the basic value of modern life. Comfort and pleasure at the cost of suppressing others are the outcome of modern lifestyle. It is to open the eyes of humanity to realize realities that Christmas comes with the message of love.

Promise of peace and prosperity

Christmas promises peace and prosperity. The birth of Jesus in utter poverty is a consolation and hope to all suffering. It comes with a promise of peace and prosperity to all people of good will. Christmas celebration does not consist in decoration and dinner. Rather it is a sharing of loving thoughts, words and deeds with others. It is a sharing of love. It is sharing of real love with oneself, with others and with God.
