Secretary of NSDC of Ukraine Oleksandr Turchynov congratulated Ukrainian western rite Christians on Christmas
Today is Christmas by the Gregorian calendar, which we and the most of the world use.
I sincerely congratulate all those, who today celebrate this wonderful holiday - the birth of our Savior.
He was born to, through his self-sacrifice, give people salvation and restore the lost connection with the Creator. He was born to give people Hope. The Hope, that the light will defeat the darkness everywhere, if we help it to prevail in our hearts. He was born to give people Faith. The Faith in their own strength and in the eternal triumph of good over evil. He was born to remind us of Love. The Love as the basis of life and the universe. With Hope, Faith and Love we can overcome everything.
Happy holidays, my friends! May the Lord bless you and your families! May the Lord bless our Ukraine!
Christ was born! Praise Him!
