Mam nadzieję, w czasie tegorocznych świąt Bożego Narodzenia, że nasze świadectwo w świecie będzie znakiem, który pomoże ludziom opuścić noc i wkroczyć w dzień, wyjść im z ciemności do nowego światła,wyprowadzić ich z rozpaczy i napełnić nadzieją, przenieść ich ze śmierci do nowego życia oraz z piekła do nieba. Możemy tego dokonać, jeżeli prawdziwie przeżyjemy dar Chrystusa Wcielonego, dar Jego życia, dar Jego pokoju, dar Jego miłości…”
