“Love is also another important aspect of this Gift. Let the love of Jesus remain in your hearts and let it show in your behaviour to your friends, your brothers and sisters, and your parents.”

“Merry Christmas to all my wonderful children, be obedient to your parents, teachers, and elders, say no to violence and bullying and continue to be excellent in everything you do.
