Merry Christmas.

I love illustration by Yoko Imoto.

No.2: make me an instrument of Your peace.
Where there is hatred, let me sow love;
where there is injury, pardon;
where there is doubt, faith;
where there is despair, hope;
where there is darkness, light;
and where there is sadness, joy.

No.3: It is not how much we do, but how much love we put in the doing. 

No.5: Poverty was not created by God. It is we who have caused it, you and I through our egotism

No.7&8: We ourselves feel that what we are doing is just a drop in the ocean. But the ocean would be less because of that missing drop.

No.9&10: It is easy to be proud & harsh & selfish – so easy.
But we have been created for better things.

No.11: At first, let us get to know each others. If we got to know each others, let us love each others. If we love each others, let us help each others.
If we really want to love we must learn how to forgive.

Merry Christmas.
