Christmas party in Lumezzane (Italy), December 21, 2014.
On Sunday, December 21, the girls from Lumezzane, with the help of the sisters, organized a Christmas celebration with a Chinese them that included making and serving dinner for their families. To prepare the celebration, the girls made decorations for the tables and the hall. They also prepared a short dance to start the whole event.
The day before, they had spent the afternoon with the sisters helping prepare the Chinese food, set the tables and do the decorations. The dinner was presided by an image of the Virgin of China, to whom we entrusted, in a particular way, all the persecuted Christians in that country, who with their lives teach us the importance of living the true faith without fear. Those who had never tried Chinese food approached the table hesitantly, but in the end, they liked it a lot.
It was a nice experience for the girls, because it gave them the opportunity to do something for their families. It is important, especially in this time of Christmas, to help others instead of thinking only about ourselves. Only in this way one finds true happiness.
