Selected: Christmas Message From Dr Alfred Lokuji

"I strongly feel the weight of the argument that what South Sudan needs is peace in our hearts, not positions for all! The most important ingredient for peace to reign is GOOD WILL!"

“To all my friends:
Some of you have sent me beautiful cards - some are of your original thought; others forwarded with the intention that I further forward it or even return it to you! And more unable to send any greeting, but are filled with kind wishes for me and all humanity! Take this as my card to you created in my heart!
For mystical reasons Christmas unites us all - those with or without trees in their living room; those with trees loaded to the ceiling and those who still wonder what it is all about!
I still have ringing in my ear drums "Gloria in Excelsis Deum, et in terra pax hominibus - BONE VOLUNTATIS!" Glory be to God in the highest, and on Earth, PEACE to men/women of GOOD WILL. 

I strongly feel the weight of the argument that what South Sudan needs is peace in our hearts, not positions for all! The most important ingredient for peace to reign is GOOD WILL!
And upon the hope and assumption that each of you, my friends, are men and women of good will - we will all glorify our Creator and earn abundant blessings for having such good will. On that assumption let this Christmas be a season of Joy to all our leaders and all citizens, regardless of their political persuasion or ethnic origin!
And to those who are undergoing the test of life as was experienced by Mary and Joseph and the child Jesus in a prehistoric stable - with the threat of Herod about to put them to flight - I say Courage.
And if you think life has singled you out for misery, I remind you - "memento homo quia pulvis es et in pulverem reverteris". Even those with a million dollars or more in their pockets are also dust - and into dust shall they return.
In the mean time, Joy to the world - and to YOU - making the New Year one full of pleasant surprises! You deserve it! You have earned it!"
