Dear rural people worldwide,
Facing a year, never experienced since mankind remembers, locked down and separated from family and friends, we feel like the Holy Family: lonely and lost in the darkness of night.
But holy light is shining to a lonely place in Bethlehem and new life is starting its way on earth.
May the power of Jesus be with us, may it be way, truth, life and light to guide us to he open door oft he kingdom of heaven.
A blessed Christmas and a safe new year 2021
