“Every year we turn on the lights to herald the arrival of Christmas. Light not only creates a festive atmosphere, but also brings hope.
“For Christians, Jesus is the’light of the world’, but today we cannot celebrate his birth in the usual way. People of all religions cannot gather as they wish, such as Passover, Easter, Eid al-Fitr and Vaisakhi. But we need life to move on.
“Last month, when Hindus, Sikhs and Jainas celebrated Diwali, the festival of lights, fireworks around Windsor lit up the sky. Despite the social distance, they also provided a happy hour of hope and unity. .
“It’s worth noting that this year will definitely make people different. This brings us closer in many ways. Throughout the Commonwealth, my family and I have been volunteered by people in the community to help people in need. Inspired by the story.
“In the UK and around the world, people have met the challenges of the year. I am proud and touched by this quiet and tenacious spirit. I especially want to express my gratitude to our young people and thank you for your role.
“This year, we celebrated the International Nurses Day, the 200th anniversary of the birth of Florence Nightingale. Like other nursing pioneers such as Mary Seacole, Florence Nightingale Nightingale) gave the world a light of hope.
“Today, supported by the amazing achievements of modern science, our front-line service still illuminates us, and we owe them gratitude.
“We continue to be inspired and comforted by the kindness of strangers, even in the darkest night, the new dawn is full of hope.
Jesus touched on this with good Samaritan parables. The person who was robbed and left on the side of the road was saved by someone who had no common belief or culture. Today, this beautiful and kind story still has practical significance.
“Good Samaritans have appeared in the entire society, regardless of gender, race or background, showing care and respect for all people. This reminds us that each of us is special and equal in the eyes of God.
“The teaching of Christ has become my inner light, and we can find purpose when we gather together to worship.
“In November, we commemorated another hero-although no one knew his name. The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier is not a large memorial, but everyone who enters Westminster Abbey must walk around his resting place to commemorate The unknown soldier of the First World War-this is a symbol of selfless responsibility and ultimate sacrifice.
“The Unknown Soldier is not an exception. This is the point. He represents millions of people like him. Throughout our history, he has put the lives of others above his own, and he will do so today. For me, this is a source of lasting hope during difficult and unpredictable times.
“Of course, for many people, this time of the year is full of sadness: some people mourn the loss of their loved ones, while others miss relatives and friends for safety reasons, and all they really want for Christmas is A simple thing. Hug or squeeze hands.
“If you are in it, then you are not alone, let me assure you of my thoughts and prayers.
“The Bible tells how a star appeared in the sky, and its light led the shepherds and wise men to the scene of the nativity of Jesus. Let the light of Christmas-the spirit of selflessness, love and most importantly hope-guide us in the future era.
“In this spirit, I wish you a Merry Christmas.”
