“Do not be afraid, the darkness cannot defeat the light, be as happy as you can.” It is the message of hope and optimism that he launched Monsignor Angelo Kairati during Mass birthday celebrate in a crowded place Basilica of San Magno-Lignano.
The ceremony took place at 11pm on Saturday, December 25th and concluded with a greeting outside the church in which the Dean wanted to wish everyone a Merry Christmas. The moment of celebration ended with the traditional A toast on the square offered by the Red Cross of Legnano and the Civil Protection.
Below is the welcome message from Monsignor Angelo Kairati
We know from Gospel tradition that Jesus’ family did not find a place in Bethlehem to give birth to the Child. He took no pity on anyone, and made a simple gesture of humanity and hospitality. On the other hand, Christmas gives way to Jesus and others, Especially in this moment of disillusionment, when for many the complexity of existence becomes an elusive enemy, a source of dull resentment and tension.
We need kind words, fraternal gestures filled with humanity. It is not a matter of doing good, but of appreciating all that heritage of human and religious values that, since childhood, have shaped the best of our culture and our country.
May my love and blessings reach you with my friends. I wish you a peaceful Christmas and express my personal affinity and prayers for those for whom this will not be the same.
with my love,
Archbishop Angelo Kairati
