Christmas message of Northern Province Governor

Merry Christmas 2017 is upon us ! Christmas is a time which is symbolised by the birth of Christ. It’s a time to reflect on our values, love, peace and culture. We reflect on the boundless love of God.

Christmas is the universal season to aspire to create an environment of love, harmony, tolerance and co-existence that is eternal to the birth and life of Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is a great messenger of reconciliation and social righteousness to the world.
It is better to light a candle than curse the darkness.

There are millions of people lighting candles of hope in our world today. Christmas is both a sacred religious holiday and a worldwide cultural phenomenon. For two millennia, people around the world have been celebrating Merry Christmas with traditions and practices that are both religious and worldly in nature.
The first sign of Christmas celebrations in our country dates back to many centuries. December 25th, the commemoration of the birth of Lord Jesus Christ is equally enjoyed by both the Christians and non-Christians of Sri Lanka as a great celebration of peace and reconciliation among all communities of Mother Sri Lanka.
We should also think of those underprivileged and deprived in this Christmas season. Poverty, loneliness, illness, the loss of loved ones – these realities make us determine to work for solution for them at this Christmas. As a first step, we can reduce some of their sorrows by sharing our love with them.
When the light shines the darkness cannot overcome it.
Jesus Christ is the 'Prince of Peace' and 'Life's Great Champion'. His love for the fearful, sinful, abused and hurting is awesome and an absolute reality. Jesus said, " Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid."(John 14:27)
May Lord Jesus bless you and your family with lots of peace, prosperity, love and luck !


Reginald Cooray,
Northern Province
