The Magic of Christmas

The Magic of Christmas

We are not alone at all, we are never alone at all. And that, of course, is the message of Christmas, when God becomes Emmanuel, GOD WITH US. This is the message of Christmas of 2018, the MOB conveys to the least and the most deprived section of the society of all the time, the leprosy patients of MANDYA. The gift, we give to them is a newly constructed Ulcer Care Centre, for the leprosy patients. Thanks to the initiative and generous hearts of many people who through our Mission Office wanted this best gift for our brothers and sisters who carry still the signs of the dreaded disease of leprosy. The joyful presence and the sparkle in the eyes of these beloved ones of the Lord bring Jesus’ presence tangible to everyone during this Christmas. It’s a time to remember what other people have done for them through us; to see that our fellow-people are just as real as we are, and try to look behind their faces to their hearts, hungry for joy; A reminder to each one of us to become aware that probably the only good reason for our existence is not what we are going to get out of life, but what we are going to give to life; to look around us through our bits of good works like these for a place where we can sow a few seeds of happiness. Yes, the joy of brightening other lives, bearing each others' burdens, easing each others' loads and supplanting empty hearts and lives with generous gifts becomes for us the magic of Christmas.
