Doa seorang tentara tak dikenal

kneeling modern 4

Aku mohon kepada Tuhan kekuatan yang dapat kuraih.

Malah aku dibuat lemah agar dapat belajar taat dengan rendah hati.

Aku mohon kesehatan agar dapat melakukan hal-hal yang hebat.

Malah aku diberi kelemahan agar dapat melakukan hal-hal yang lebih baik.

Aku mohon kekayaan agar aku dapat bahagia.

Malah aku diberi kemiskinan agar bisa bijaksana.

Aku mohon kekuatan agar mendapatkan pujian orang.

Malah aku diberi kelemahan agar dapat merasa membutuhkan Tuhan.

Aku mohon semua hal agar aku bisa menikmati hidup.

Malah aku diberi kehidupan lebih lama agar dapat menikmati segala hal.

Aku tak mendapatkan apa pun yang telah kupinta,

tapi malah mendapatkan apa pun yang kuharapkan.

Hampir semua doaku yang tak terucapkan-lah yang telah dijawab.

Di antara semua orang, ternyata aku adalah orang yang paling terberkati.

God bless you my new friend on this holy day of the year.

New friend, you are the greatest gift I could have received this year.

New friends make our souls rejoice and appreciate all of the bounty that God provides at Christmas and throughout the year.

Now that you are in my life, I could never picture a Christmas without you.

Having you around makes Christmas be what I always envisioned that it could.

Let this Christmas serve as a reminder to us both of how precious our friendship really is.

If I had to choose between you and all the gifts under the tree, no doubt exists that I would choose you.

No matter what gifts I receive on Christmas, nothing could amount to the joy I get from spending time with you.

You are my new friend; you are my best friend. Merry Christmas to my comrade.

Wherever you go, always remember how much I appreciate you this Christmas.

Christmas is a special time; you are a special person. Let us spend this wonderful day together.

Singing praises of joy reminds me of how lucky I am to have you in my life.

Just know that I’ll be thinking of you when I envision all for which I am grateful this year.

Our friendship is new, but it means so much to me. Watching it grow gives me something to appreciate at Christmas and all year long.

I’ll wish you a Merry Christmas as long as we’re friends – forever!

Want to know what I want for Christmas? A friend like you!

Friends like you make it Christmas Day every day – but it’s best on December 25th.

The wreath and the holly and the tree are important – but a great friend is more important. Merry Christmas!

I used to think Santa Claus was the best friend anyone could have – then I met you!

My favorite Christmas present isn’t a package under my tree. It’s a friend like you by my side.

I’ve never had a better Christmas than this – or a better friend than you!

Ucapan Natal religius:

God is always here for us at Christmas and all year long.

Jesus has brought us a beautiful gift: Christmas.

When you are gathered around the tree, remember the true meaning of Christmas: the birth of Christ.

Not only is Christmas not a word without Christ, but Christmas has no real meaning without Christ.

Going to Mass for Christmas is a fundamental part of celebrating the holiday.

You might give gifts, eat food and indulge in hearty beverages, but you are not celebrating Christmas if you avoid the acknowledgement of Christ.

The spiritual inspiration from the birth of Christ is the motivation for the entire season.

 Kartu Natal

Always allow Christ into your hearts, whether it is Christmas or not.

Let this Christmas be the start of your renewed relationship with Christ.

On that first Christmas, the birth of Jesus Christ, no elaborate shows were made, and no gifts were given. Return to simplicity this year in honor of our Savior.

Always remember that Jesus is the reason we celebrate Christmas.

If you look for the magic in the Christmas season, you’ll certainly find it.

Let this season inspire you to seek out your spirituality.

When you invite Jesus into your life, you will immediately notice the positive changes.

 religious_christmas_card-r7c289aa034254963a808e5e7b8bc8eed_xvuat_8byvr_324

Jesus gave the gift of his life. This Christmas season, volunteer and give your own gift to the community.

Through humanitarian efforts and dedication to God and Jesus, the world can become a better place this Christmas season.

Learn to celebrate Advent and prepare for Christ’s birth.

Let this Advent be a season of giving spiritually.

Spiritual gifts are the greatest ones found on the earth.

May God bless you this Christmas and every Christmas.

God’s love is the finest gift on Christmas morning.

religious_x_mas_card-r8da54f2b7f534397b1224946a0fa5fd0_xvuat_8byvr_324

Prayer deepens the meaning of the Christmas season.

Christmas does not exist without Christ.

On Christmas morning, you will see proof of God and Christ in your home, in your hearts and in your family.

Ucapan Natal dengan kata emosional:

Christmas may be the only time when being emotional actually pays off.

At Christmas, the word “emotional” doesn’t automatically mean overreactive. Emotional can mean everything from “I care” to “I believe” to “I have had enough.”

If someone accuses you of being emotional at Christmas, shrug and blame it on the reindeer. Christmas is about caring, after all.

Being called emotional can be synonymous with being called weak or to giving in to one’s emotions; at Christmas, it is actually a normal state of being.

 religious-christmas-31

It is not emotional to care. This Christmas, let yours show.

The emotional winds of Christmas can move even the most stolid of souls.

At Christmas, let yourself get emotional. Feel the vibration. Be the love.

Christmas carols and hymns put the “motion” in the word, emotional.

Christmas is not about holding back: It is about compassion, hope, rebirth, and faith: There is nothing overly emotional about that.

To be awake at Christmas, one must be willing to feel the emotions of love, compassion, and faith. The trick is to let the love flow without growing overly, or falsely, emotional.

There is nothing more cold than emotion, if it is false. This Christmas, think twice before you pretend. Be authentic. Give yourself–and give others around you–the gift
of you being who you actually are, not who others want you to be.

Gambar Natal

Christmas: Though emotions often run high, the word “emotional” is still an unpopular choice. Give your mother or loved one a break this holiday season and try to be more sensitive with your word choice when describing him or her.

It is easy to get emotional when the story of Christ is what’s being discussed.

Nothing stirs us into an emotional state more than the miracles of Christmas, whether that be the birth of Christ or something smaller and closer to our daily lives, like the smile of one of our children.

“… Before our communication system gets busy tonite and tomorrow, allow me to wish you the following: As you come together to celebrate xmas in your family with lots of joy, anxieties and sad experiences specially those affected by mitra bank case, I wish you to enjoy christ’s birth, our real gift and treasure of life. We experience chaotic situations in many parts of the world and our own worlds. It may seem to be paradoxical to speak of peace that xmas signifies. But I tell u that true peace only comes from God on Christ’s natal day.. Christmas also is a time to say sorry to each other, those I, we have hurt intentionally or unintentionally in 2013.. I wish you Merry Xmas and a grace filled New Year.. Gbu u, mama mary loves u, pray 4u, smile, ciao… ” (Sent by Pater Peter Payong from Lembata, Flores).

Easter Poem by Ulil Abshar-Abdalla, an Islamic scholar & activist

April 28, 2011

Here is a poem written by Ulil Abshar-Abdalla, an Islamic scholar from Indonesia affiliated to Jaringan Islam Liberal (Liberal Islam Network), a group which voices out a liberal interpretation of Islam.

After completing his master’s degree in religion in Boston University, he went on and continued his PhD studies in the Department of Near Eastern Languages and Civilizations, Harvard University.

In 2003, a group of Indonesian Islamic cleric from Forum Ulama Umat Islam issued a death fatwa against Ulilfor an article that Ulil wrote in Kompas in 2002, “Menyegarkan Kembali Pemahaman Islam” (Rejuvenating the Islamic Understanding) that is considered heretical by the clerics. In March 2011, a letter bomb addressed to Ulil at Komunitas Utan Kayu exploded, injuring a police officer.

Ulil also defended the right of the Ahmadi people, which is an uncommon stance within conservative Islam. He also opposes many of fatwas by Majelis Ulama Indonesia, such as the one forbidding to give Christmas greetings to Christians.

Please read his Easter Poem, translated from the original in Bahasa Indonesia!

Easter Poem

By Ulil Abshar-Abdalla

He who collapsed,

on the holy virgin’s lap,

resurrected after three days, against death.

He who was weak,

revived an impossible expectation.

He who is the weakest,

His body bears our sufferings.

***************************

He who is the weakest,

His suffering conquers kings of the world.

He who falled in love with morning,

after being stoned painfully.

He who looked up to the holy sky,

swathed in scarlet red cloth: Love me, please!

****************************************

They argue

about who died on the wooden cross.

I’m not interested in the debate of theologians.

It is the pouring blood which strongly touches me.

When I boast my faith,

The painful body lying on that wood,

keeps reminding me:

In fact, He also suffers, with the insulted.

************************************

My Mohammed, your Jesus, your Buddha, your Krisna, your Confucius,

they all are my teachers,

who teach me about the vastness of the world, and love.

*************************************************

Your disease, O believers:

You easily become complacent, arrogant,

boasting yourself like a peacock.

You are eager to judge!

*********************

The body with the pouring blood on that wood,

is not a peacock.

He teaches us, about love,

for those who are misled and insulted.

**********************************

Suffering sometimes teaches you

about a humble faith.

The letters in the scriptures,

often make you feel you are the only holiest person.

**********************************************

Yes, your Jesus is also my Jesus,

Ha has saved me from a faith,

which is arrogant and too proud.

He makes me love the insulted!

****************************

Puisi Paskah

Oleh : Ulil Abshar-Abdalla

Ia yang rebah,
di pangkuan perawan suci,
bangkit setelah tiga hari, melawan mati.
Ia yang lemah,
menghidupkan harapan yang nyaris punah.
Ia yang maha lemah,
jasadnya menanggungkan derita kita.

Ia yang maha lemah,
deritanya menaklukkan raja-raja dunia.
Ia yang jatuh cinta pada pagi,
setelah dirajam nyeri.
Ia yang tengadah ke langit suci,
terbalut kain merah kirmizi: Cintailah aku!

Mereka bertengkar
tentang siapa yang mati di palang kayu.
Aku tak tertarik pada debat ahli teologi.
Darah yang mengucur itu lebih menyentuhku.

Saat aku jumawa dengan imanku,
tubuh nyeri yang tergeletak di kayu itu,
terus mengingatkanku:
Bahkan, Ia pun menderita, bersama yang nista.

Muhammadku, Yesusmu, Krisnamu, Buddhamu, Konfuciusmu,
mereka semua guru-guruku,
yang mengajarku tentang keluasan dunia, dan cinta.

Penyakitmu, wahai kaum beriman:
Kalian mudah puas diri, pongah,
jumawa, bagai burung merak.
Kalian gemar menghakimi!

Tubuh yang mengucur darah di kayu itu,
bukan burung merak.
Ia mengajar kita, tentang cinta,
untuk mereka yang disesatkan dan dinista.

Penderitaan kadang mengajarmu
tentang iman yang rendah hati.
Huruf-huruf dalam kitab suci,
kerap membuatmu merasa paling suci.

Ya, Yesusmu adalah juga Yesusku.
Ia telah menebusku dari iman,
yang jumawa dan tinggi hati.
Ia membuatku cinta pada yang dinista!

Stephen Hawking, astronom hebat sedang bermain dadu dengan Tuhan?

September 29, 2010
Hawking & istri kedua. [Setelah bercerai tahun 1995 dengan istri pertamanya Jane Wilde, Hawking menikah dengan perawatnya Elaine Mason (istri dari David Mason, desainer pertama komputernya yang bisa berbicara). Oktober 2006 ia mengajukan perceraian dari istri keduanya ini].
Sejak publikasi buku Stephen Hawking A Brief History of Time tahun 1988, telah terjual 10 juta kopi dan diperkirakan ia meraup uang 4 juta Pounsterling.
Hawking membandingkan agama dan sains dan tahun 2010 ia mengatakan: “Ada satu perbedaan fundamental antara agama, yang berdasarkan otoritas dan sains yang berdasarkan observasi dan penalaran. Sains akan menang karena ia bekerja.
Pada September 2010 menulis dalam buku barunya The Grand Design bahwa hukum-hukum fisika dapat menciptakan alam semesta dari ketiadaan. Ia tidak mempersyaratkan Tuhan dan bahwa penggunaan kata “Tuhan” sebelumnya hanya retorik belaka.
Pernyataan Stephen Hawking ini mendorong kami menelusuri pendapat para ahli sains tentang eksistensi dan peran Tuhan, termasuk pendapat Hawking sebelumnya.

Di batu nisan kubur Gus Dur: “Di sinilah dikubur seorang pluralis”. Renewing our spirit of pluralism

Januari 7, 2010

Untuk mengenang Gus Dur, perkenankan kami post artikel dari Jakarta Post ini. Penulisnya telah mengizinkan kami muat di sini untuk merefleksikan perjuangan pantang mundur Gus Dur menegakkan pluralisme bagi kejayaan tanah air.

Renewing our spirit of tolerance, pluralism

Gabriel Faimau ,  Bristol   |  Mon, 01/04/2010 9:20 AM  |  Opinion

Amid the political bubbles concerning the Bank Century scandal, we are once again disturbed by the news of the recent destruction of a church that was still under construction in Harapan Indah residential complex, Bekasi, West Java (The Jakarta Post, Dec. 19, 2009). Indeed, this event again and again puts our national sense and spirit of tolerance into question.

Our country has long been recognized internationally as a country with an “outstanding” performance when it comes to respecting cultural and religious differences. An international seminar held in Rome, Italy, last March 2009, for example, elevated Indonesia as a model of international tolerance.

Opening this seminar, Franco Frattini, the Italian foreign minister mentioned Indonesia as an important actor in world peace (Paulinus Yan Olla, Kompas March 27, 2009). So, with the recent event of the attack on this church, we should again ask ourselves: are we really still a nation that respects our multicultural and multi-religious pride?

Destroying a place of worship often occurs when a society loses its capacity and ability to live together differently.

This loss becomes even worse when small differences become a thorn in the flesh. Sigmund Freud interestingly invented the phrase “narcissism of the small difference” to explain this problem. What Freud meant is that too often people see difference as an absolute and a continual threat to one’s identity even though it may be just a slight difference.

According to Adam Selligman (2008), when a society is challenged with the notion of the “small difference”, we often develop two common moves.

Firstly, the small difference is exacerbated by pushing away a group beyond our sense of shared humanity. Members of this group are seen as objectionable strangers or outsiders. In this context, tolerance is ruled out simply because it does not have a place.

Secondly, the need for tolerance is avoided by directing the small difference in a different direction.

Here the importance of differences is reduced or even neglected by only appealing to some basic shared characteristics. The problem with this approach is that tolerance is not needed because we appear to run away from our differences.

Bukan berebut dan saling menarik turun dalam lomba panjat pinang, tetapi bekerja sama bahu membahu untuk memekarkan Indonesia yang pluralis. (Para siswa Seminari Menengah Pematang Siantar pada HUT Proklamasi 2009)

If we want our pluralist society to work, tolerance should be appreciated as a virtue that must be cultivated as the basis for our Indonesian spirit guided by a principle of equally sharing our Indonesian civil space.

Recognizing our differences and strengthening our shared humanity requires renewal every now and then.

Events that involve the destruction of places of worship have often occurred in our country, particularly in the past two decades. Analysts often view this problem through the frame of majority-minority relationships. Such a frame makes sense. However, Indonesians are brought up on the belief of a nation of many faces with one heart. But there is still the question of how we define the notion of majority-minority relationships when we have a shared-responsibility for taking care of our Indonesian spirit.

I think the main problem we often face is the ideological contests through which one or a group may consider another group as an embodiment of an ideology or an embodiment of a religious belief that is not his/hers. Within a political space, too often such contests become more problematic when they are based on the premise that “faith is so important and therefore everybody should follow the faith that I or my group believe in”.

This way of thinking does not only deny the basic rights of human freedom. It does deny humanity as a whole. A better way of living in a multicultural society will only be accessed by every citizen if there is a will to embrace a new perspective based on the proposition that “faith is so important that everyone should respectfully be allowed to live according to a faith that is true to him/her” (Sacks 2002).

Indeed, our diversity is something to be cherished. But che-rishing our diversity is not enough. Unless we respect and protect the rights of every citizen and every cultural and religious group under the rule of law, our diversity will only be romanticized as a tourist attraction, while in the political sphere it may become ‘an everlasting sensitive issue’ and on the practical level, diversity may turn out to be something we are scared to talk about.

This means that if we lose our willingness to guard diversity as our nation’s pride and if we fail to allow space for virtuous tolerance, it is very possible the idea of Bhineka Tunggal Ika (unity in diversity) will easily become an empty slogan memorized in schools or written in the textbooks. A renewal of our sense and spirit for tolerance is therefore urgently needed.

Kisah sejarah terciptanya lagu “Malam Kudus” (Stille Nacht, Silent Night)

Desember 26, 2008

portraithttpwwwsilentnightmuseumorgjoseph-mohrportraithtm

Pastor Joseph Mohr, penulis lirik lagu “Malam Kudus” (Foto yang digambar kembali)

Tahun 1816 Pastor Joseph Mohr menulis lirik lagu “Malam Kudus” (aslinya “Stille Nacht”) ketika bertugas di gereja peziarah di sebuah desa Mariapfarr, Lungau di pegunungan Alpen, Austria. Beberapa hari sebelum Natal tahun 1818, Joseph Mohr sebagai pastor pembantu di gereja Santo Nikolaus, Obendorf, Salzburg, Austria, bingung karena organ di gereja rusak. Umat bakal kecewa jika lagu-lagu Natal dinyanyikan tanpa iringan organ. Umat yang terbanyak terdiri dari pekerja kapal, pembuat perahu, dan keluarganya.pun sedang dirundung kesulitan ekonomi. Penyebabnya adalah terhentinya transportasi garam melalui sungai di Salzburg setelah Perang Napoleon (1792 – 1815).. Ekonomi lesu dan penduduk setempat mengalami depresi ekonomi.

Inilah kapel yang dibangun di bekas reruntuhan gereja Santo Nikolaus, Obendorf, Salzburg, Austria, tempat pertama kali dikumandangkan lagu “Malam Kudus”

Dalam keadaan bingung Mohr berjalan kaki ke rumah Franz Gruber, seorang guru SD yang menjadi organis dan pemimpin koor di gereja. Ia menunjukkan lirik yang ditulis dua tahun lalu kepada Gruber. Gruber langsung menggubah melodinya dan menyerahkannya kepada Mohr. Mohr merasa puas dan keduanya mulai berlatih. Tepat pada malam vigili Natal, 24 Desember 1818. Mohr menyanyikan suara tenor sambil mengiringi dengan gitar, sedangkan Gruber menyanyikan suara bas. Nyanyian keduanya langsung disambut gembira umat.

Pemandangan di sekitar Gereja Santo Nikolaus di Salzburg, Austria

Naskah asli lagu ini lama hilang seiring dengan dirobohkannya gereja ini pada awal tahun 1900-an karena telah hancur akibat banjir dan karena pusat kota telah dipindahkan ke bukit yang lebih aman. Sebuah gereja baru dibangun di pusat kota yang baru.

Semula lagu ini lama tak dikenal. Penyebabnya antara lain karena lagu ini tidak berasal dari komponis terkenal atau dari katedral tersohor. Apa sih yang berharga yang diharapkan dari sebuah kampung kecil yang namanya tidak tercantum di peta.

Tahun 1863 John Freeman Young menterjemahkan lagu ini ke dalam bahasa Inggris dengan judul “Silent Night”. Segera lagu ini tersebar luas ke seluruh dunia dan dinyanyikan sampai sekarang. Kini lagu ini diperkirakan telah diterjemahkan ke lebih dari 200 bahasa di dunia. Komposisi musik Gruber dalam lagu ini dipengaruhi tradisi musik di pedesaan tempat tinggalnya. Melodinya mencerminkan segi-segi musik rakyat Austria. Ini membuktikan bahwa banyak lagu yang menjadi populer dan mendunia sebenarnya mengadopsi motif lagu atau musik rakyat yang sudah mentradisi berabad-abad. Lagu-lagu itu kemudian bertahan lama, bisa sampai berabad-abad sebagai kelanjutan tradisi musik-lagu rakyat berabad sebelumnya.

Setelah menjadi amat populer timbul tanda tanya siapa pengarang lagu ini. Berbagai versi cerita beredar dan banyak cerita fiksi bermunculan. Rasa ingin tahu ini menggerakkan hati para peneliti untuk mencari jawaban. Tahun 1995 naskah asli tulisan tangan Mohr ditemukan oleh para peneliti. Tulisan itu menunjukkan bahwa lirik lagu itu ditulis tahun 1816 sedangkan melodinya dikarang tahun 1818 oleh Franz Gruber. Kemudian, sebuah kapel kecil dibangun di tempat reruntuhan gereja yang asli dan dinamakan “Stille-Nacht-Gedächtniskapelle”(Kapel Kenangan Malam Kudus). Sebuah rumah di dekatnya diubah menjadi museum yang sampai sekarang dikunjungi banyak turis dari berbagai penjuru dunia.

Hikmah apa yang dapat dipetik dari sejarah lagu “Malam Kudus”?

Di Indonesia lagu-lagu kaum muda yang meniru irama musik pop Barat cenderung amat cepat ditinggalkan masyarakat karena sebenarnya irama musik pop belum memiliki tradisi panjang dalam masyarakat kita. Sedangkan, popularitas lagu seperti lagu Butet yang menerapkan irama lagu masyarakat Batak tersebar luas dan disenangi masyarakat Indonesia, bahkan masyarakat Rusia, sedangkan lagu Bengawan Solo yang berirama keroncong juga disenangi masyarakat Indonesia dan menular digandrungi masyarakat Jepang.

Hal ini menunjukkan gejala yang sama seperti latar belakang lagu “Malam Kudus”. Sebuah lagu yang berakar pada tradisi musik-lagu sebuah masyarakat atau yang memperbaharui irama lagu-musik rakyat cenderung tahan zaman di masyarakat setempat dan cenderung diterima di berbagai bagian dunia. Karena, sebenarnya irama itu sudah teruji dan tersaring dalam sejarah selama berabad-abad.

Kunjungan ke Kapela “Silent Night, Holy Night” atau “Malam Kudus”

Oleh Peter Paskalis

Tiga belas tahun silam saya mengunjungi Kapela „Silent Night, Holy Night“ di Oberndorf, di mana lagu terkenal „Malam Kudus“ diciptakan. Oberndorf, suatu kampung sekitar 20 km di sebelah Utara Kota Salzburg (Kota kelahiran Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart di Austria), terletak tepat di perbatasan antara Austria dan Jerman.

Dalam perjalanan menuju kampung ini, saya membayangkan suatu gereja besar, mengingat kebesaran dan ketenaran lagu ini yang diterjemahkan hampir ke dalam semua bahasa di dunia. Ketika memasuki Oberndorf, saya berusaha melihat candi gereja terbesar dan saya kaget, ketika keluarga yang menemani saya menunjukkan suatu kapela kecil dekat sungai kecil yang membatasi Austria dan Jerman. Wah, kapela mungil, mungkin hanya untuk 8-10 orang di dalamnya.

Lagu „Silent Night“ (Stille Nacht, dalam bahasa Jerman) dinyanyikan pertama kali di kapela ini pada malam Natal tahun 1818. Diiringi dengan orgel sederhana yang hampir rusak oleh Franz Xaver Gruber (pencipta melodi lagu „Malam Kudus“), karena tali pedalnya hampir putus. Karena itu, pastor pembantu di kampung ini Joseph Mohr (penulis teks lagu “Stille Nacht”) meminta orang lain untuk menemani dengan gitar.

Suatu yang berawal sederhana menghasilkan suatu karya yang terkenal di seluruh dunia.

Gereja St. Nikolaus, lebih dikenal „Kapela Malam Kudus“ (Stille Nacht Kapelle), terletak di samping sungai Salzach dan sering dilanda banjir di tahun 1890-an. Banjir sering membawa kerusakan pada kapela ini. Banjir yang terbesar terjadi tahun 1899, yang merusak hampir setengah kampung Oberndorf dan menghancurkan kapela mungil ini secara total. Karena itu umat mendirikan satu gereja baru 800 meter lebih jauh dari sungai dan agak di ketinggian.

Untuk beberapa puluh tahun, kapela ini tidak dibangun lagi, dengan alasan keuangan dan juga karena bahaya banjir selalu mengancam. Kemudian toh mengenang 100 tahun lagu Malam Kudus dan juga sebagai tanda seru dan doa untuk perdamaian dunia (mengingat perang dunia pertama 1914-1918), maka bangkitlah inisiatif membangun kembali kapella ini. Lagu Malam Kudus sering dikumandangkan di mana-mana di Eropa. Dunia mendambakan perdamaian dan simbol perdamaian dunia adalah Silent Night, Holy Night. Suatu keajaiban, 1918, tepat 100 tahun lagu ini diciptakan, perang dunia pertama berakhir…Dan sebagai tanda syukur atas perdamaian, orang berziarah ke Oberndorf dan menyumbang pembangunan kapela Malam Kudus dan selesai tahun 1937. Semoga Malam Kudus, membawa perdamaian di dunia ini. Amin. (Kiriman Peter Paskalis pada Hari Natal 2009)
