"...νυνὶ δὲ μένει πίστις, ἐλπίς, ἀγάπη, τὰ τρία ταῦτα· μείζων δὲ τούτων ἡ ἀγάπη." "...But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love.", Christmas 2012, pablolarah



I hope this Christmas you will have warm and cheerful meetings with family and friends. 

And for those who spend alone this night a warm hug and faith because the future is not written and we can change everything from now and on. 

There is a lot of people who suffer in these times, because they are hungry, or suffering the effects of the war or they are the eyes who look at you in some dark corner when you are running to buy the last Christmas gifts. Do not forget them. 

Do not forget how blessed you are because you have a home and a Christmas supper and lots of gifts to open. Do not forget the people who will spend this night without their parents or children.

That is why Christmas must be the time of the year to help the people surrounding you: your friends, the homeless in your neighbourhood and even the relatives forced to stay alone tonight.

Hug your kids, your parents, your boyfriends and girlfriends and all the people you love as if it were the last time.

As Paul the Apostle says in the First Letter to Corinthians: 

"...νυνὶ δὲ μένει πίστις, ἐλπίς, ἀγάπη, τὰ τρία ταῦτα· μείζων δὲ τούτων ἡ ἀγάπη."
"...But now faith, hope, love, abide these three; but the greatest of these is love."



 As every year, I will leave you my favourite Christmas Carol with Nana Mouskouri: Minuit Chrétiens.
