On the occasion of the glorious Christmas, the Speaker of Parliament, Nabih Berri, extended his warmest wishes to the Lebanese in general and the Christian communities, saying:
In the name of God, the Most Gracious and Merciful:
“When the angels said, O Mary, that God bodes you a word from Him, whose name is the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary.”
In its spirit and values, Christmas remains a permanent call for peace on earth, a revelation of happiness among people, and a heavenly message station, that changed the face of humanity and dedicated humanity to a new history with the values of love, freedom, redemption and salvation.
He added: And in order to deserve Christmas and live it as a permanent feast, we are called to inspire its values of hope, aspiration , and liberation from selfishness and grudges.
