Essence of Christmas


A real star was born on Christmas day: Jesus brought light and life into people’s lives.   He inspires those who seek the truth and yearn for love that lingers forever.

The essence of Christmas is spiritual love. The Holy Father sent His son out of love, and His son preached about pure love. We need to help spread His message!

A person empowered by the Supreme Person can move mountains—and change hardened hearts!

When we think of gift-giving, let’s not limit ourselves to what our eyes can see. Share Jesus’ teachings and chant the purifying names of God.


Jesus’ family includes all living entities. His love knows no religion, race or color. He loves without discrimination!

Give gifts as Jesus would—with no strings attached! Don’t give things that could harm or damage the mind and body.

On Christmas day, pray for the greatest gift—spiritual love. It can bring peace to the world. Let’s love the Father with all our heart!

Jesus was born in a manger. Let’s keep our hearts simple and pure to receive God’s gift of love and salvation!
