Christmas Message of Senator Richard J. Gordon

Warmest greetings to my kababayans here and abroad as you celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus Christ!

The Yuletide season offers a meaningful occasion for reflection that resonates with a universal message of hope. As Christmas carols fill the air with joy and merriment, let us be reminded of the aspirations we share and the responsibilities that we must perform in pursuit of national growth. Let us cast aside the cares that have divided us during the course of the year and celebrate the things that bind us closer together as one nation.

The birth of the Child Jesus in a manger should also be an occasion for us as a people to renew our commitment of time, effort and resources to help others and work towards making every Filipino family a brightly-lighted home of happiness and hope. Let Christmas therefore serve not only as an occasion for merry-making and gift-giving but also a day where we share a cup of blessings to our less fortunate brethren.

And so, in joining the rest of the Christendom in celebrating the true spirit of the season, it is my fervent wish that Christmas be not only a day to be happy and to hope for better things in life but also to renew the spirit in us to do good all throughout the year.

In God's grace, have a happy Christmas to you all!
