“We see the love of God that doesn’t leave humanity in the Christmas crib” said His Beatitude Baselios Cardinal Cleemis Catholicos addressing the Christmas gathering of the United Christian Movement (UCM) held at St Joseph’s Metropolitan Cathedral, Palayam on 19 December 2016.
“There is nothing greater than the love of God towards man. Christmas, a feast of lights, is the declaration of this great love,” His Beatitude added.
During the function the churches in the city presented Carol Songs. His beatitude also distributed the trophies to the winners who participated in the inter-school competition conducted by the United Christian Movement.
