CHRISTMAS MESSAGE BY HIS EXCELLENCY SIR FREDERICK N. BALLANTYNE, G.C.M.G., MD GOVERNOR-GENERAL OF ST. VINCENT AND THE GRENADINES

My fellow Vincentians, this year has been for us and our neighbours a very trying year.

In spite of its difficulties, we must thank God that He has guided us safely to this most important milestone in the Christian faith, the celebration of the birth of our Lord Jesus. {{more}}

Let us take this opportunity to reflect on the teachings of Jesus Christ, emphasizing PEACE, LOVE and CHARITY.

We can pledge to work harder to make this Christmas and the ensuing New Year a time of Peace in our Land.

We can rededicate our lives to spreading LOVE to all of our fellowmen, remembering that as God’s children we are all brothers and sisters.

We can more than at anytime before extend a hand of CHARITY to all those in need, especially the old and those most disadvantaged in our society.

If we accomplish all these things, I am certain that the nation would be a richer place for all of us.

I take this opportunity on behalf of myself and my family to wish you all a happy and joyous Christmas and a peaceful and prosperous New Year.

May God bless us all.
