Kohima, December 22 (NEx): The office of the Catholic Association of Nagaland (CAN), President and the Executive Committee members extended heartiest Christmas greetings to all the Catholic families and the people of Nagaland.
The president of CAN, Johnny Ruangmei, said that Christmas is the time to be grateful for the priceless gift, God has given to the world. Love came down from heaven divine when the universe expects not. There were many wise men, but only three wisemen from the East understood the sign of times. There were many shepherds but only to few shepherds the angel of the Lord stood by them saying “Do not be afraid, for see I bring you good news of great joy which will be to all the people. For there is born to you, this day, in the city of David, a Saviour who is the Messiah, the Lord. This is the sign to you: you will find a baby wrapped in strips of cloth, lying in a feeding trough”.
The Catholic Association of Nagaland (CAN), prays for great inner joy upon all the families in the Diocese of Kohima. CAN also urged every believer to become a reflection of God’s love in sharing, loving and praying for neighbours, for friends and for each other.
The president further added that this year the COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted every fabric of our society and this year Christmas 2020 has been an extra-ordinary celebration during an extra-ordinary time.
The Catholic Association of Nagaland (CAN), proposes this Christmas 2020 to be an occasion of sharing, and making others happy because we exist. Can we do incredible and noble acts for others, for our neighbours and for those who have less privilege than us and our
families? It also said that this is not for self-satisfaction but for the glory and love of God alone.
He also said, “The coronavirus pandemic has imposed a harsh reality of bereavement, illness, and an economical unemployment. Many people are already facing financial hardship and uncertainty over future prospects. The office of the Catholic Association of Nagaland (CAN), resounds the angel’s choral “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and peace on earth to people he favours”, it said.
CAN greetings said, “May this season bring happiness, peace and divine protection of all the families during this unprecedented times. Wishing you a very happy Christmas and a very prosperous and a pandemic resilient New Year 2021 upon the families of Kohima Diocese”.
