The voice of the Prophet lsaiah,walking among the people encouraging them: " Do not be afraid,for behold your God will come to save you ... And you Bethlehem are not the smallest of the villages of Israel, from you a Savior will be born.

Since 20 centuries, every year Christmas comes also for us ,synonymous for everybody, eventhough unaware,of joy,peace, festivity,emotions that can be expressed with decorations, trees, Holy Manger, gifts, happy family gathering.

For the believers the Christmas joy is the same that the Angels annunced to the shepherds in the Holy Night... "A Savior is born... peace to all !

This year for each one of us, resounds the same Christmas greating of peace, guaranteed by our Savior only for men of good will.

It's Christmas !


Our society is becoming more and more multiethnic, the various religions are mixing up: Protestants, Islamis, Animists ,Orthodox and Catholics.
Even-though Ove catholics are different as culture , traditions, religion , we are all people that respect each other enriched by our diversity.
try to say " MERRY CHRISTMAS " to all those we meet (friends, enemies, , unconcerned, unknown,and of different ideology membership)
.

Merry Christmas

I met Mother Teresa

I met Mother Teresa
of Calcuta



After I have met Mother Teresa I carote a few wards because they left a remarkable impression deep in my heart. I listened to every ward she said,l observed every gesture and I felt a grate desire to affirm these reflections not only in my heart but also on paper so nothing of these reflections would be lost. Mother Teresa started to address to God while she made the sign of the cross with: IN THE NAME OF THE FATHER - prayer - AND OF THE SON - poverty - AND OF THE HOLY SPIRIT- zeal for the souls - AMEN. What was prayer for Mother Teresa?

La carità

Un giorno venne un povero alla porta,
tendeva la sua mano per il pane,
la via che percorrevo era contorta:
lo ricacciai deciso, come un cane!
 
Poi un giorno che tirava forte il vento,
lui ritornò sicuro col sorriso,
ed io che in cuor mi dissi:
”Non mi pento!”,
il mio mantello strinsi più deciso.
