December is the month of solidarity par excellence. And today we celebrate the International Day of Human Solidarity, something that we at Marists practice throughout the year. But especially with the arrival of Jesus and the celebration of Christmas we turn even more to helping others, to collaboration and to the kindness that characterizes the Marist spirit.
That is why we want to congratulate you on Christmas from the Secretariat of the Marist European Region by encouraging you to smile at life, to smile at the arrival of Jesus. To continue to make a better world; not only thanks to our provinces, social works or our NGO, but thanks to all the people who accompany us day by day and make it possible to grow as a family.
We are proud to wish you all a Merry Christmas in such a special way as it is by showing our good habits and our motto. Therefore we send you this Christmas greeting, as a reminder to keep opening our minds, but above all our hearts, not only this month but every day of our lives.
