Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith celebrated the Christmas midnight mass at Christ the King Church, Pannipitiya.
Pope Benedict XVI sees the birth of Jesus as the most important
event in the history of the world. He says that an event of this nature has
never happened in the past and will never happen in the future.
Cardinal Malcolm Ranjith said that the reason is that the most powerful and almighty God has decided to come to earth and take the human form because of the great love to redeem humanity. The Inteligencia say that it is impossible for the almighty God to become human. But God has proved it by sending his son to the world. God has shared his life with us. The biggest problem in our society is Consumerism. Let us not become slaves of external things. This Christmas let's share our lives with others, especially with the poor.
