Dear all Spiritual Directors, Coordinators, Supporters, Collaborators and Members of 'The Family of St. Therese of the Child Jesus' - Volunteers and Donors of the 'Teresa Charities,'
Christians and non-Christians alike around the world are preparing to celebrate Christmas again this year, the birthday of the Savior of world who comes into the world to bring peace to people, justice to the lowly and consolation to the poor. His main mission is to teach us about his Heavenly Kingdom, where there will be no pain nor sufferings but only peace and joy that we all wish to be in our next life. Jesus is the greatest gift to mankind from the loving God. May I ask, what is our gift to Jesus on his birthday this year? Jesus once told us exactly what he really loves to have for his present as he said, "If you love me; keep my commandments." Then, He commanded us, "Love one another as I have loved you." Doing what Jesus has commanded is the best gift that Jesus always wants and expects from each one of us, not just for this Christmas but for the rest of our lives.
On behalf of The Family of St. Therese of the Child Jesus, we thank you very much for your support of St. Therese's Family, especially for your contributions of times and treasures to the works of the Teresa Charities over the years that have saved lives and brought real joy to many less-fortunate people around the world. May God bless your generous hearts and that you may find the true joy in your lives as you continue with this loving ministry.
Merry Christmas and a Blessed New Year - 2015!
