‘Looking forward to Christmas’

We all look forward to Christmas, young and old.  There is a feeling a well being and everyone shakes hands and offers you his/her good wishes.  That is a good thing; a very good thing.  This is not just a religious feeling but even people who do not believe in God portray this sense of wellbeing towards others.  The lights, the colourful shops, the songs in the streets, the offers to help others – all these help us to remember that we live with other people and if we help them then we are giving them part of our love.

Imagine if this feeling was carried on throughout the year.  Why should I not continue to salute my neighbour every morning or the guy with whom I share the lift.  Why should I not continue to do small, simple gestures of love towards others which cost me nothing but which may make some body feel good today – I may just allow some one to come out from a difficult side street to pass in front of me; I may just smile at an elderly couple and say “Good morning”; I may just look up from my computer to help a colleague at work who is trying to finish within a deadline.

All are simple things which we may do every day of our lives and which spread love towards others; thus multiplying God’s love for us. In every individual I meet there is God’s spirit in him/her.  When I help some one I am doing it to God.  He told us that “Whatever you do for any one of these little ones, you are doing it to Me.” Madre Theresa said (not in quote): It is best to do many small things but with a lot of love.

(this thought has been written by Paul Borg – Malta)

Monthly Reflection by George Calleja - December 2013 - 'The crib for baby Jesus'

Christmas is once again with us. The joy that baby Jesus was born.......and through Him Salvation was possible.

This month we should make an extra effort to really let Jesus be in us, live in us, live in others. The crib for baby Jesus is that He lives in our hearts.
Jesus has taught us how to love, the love that brings peace in families, between nations, that brings peace in our hearts. The best Christmas present is to give Jesus to others, where there are arguments between married couples.....let there be peace, where there are wars between nations.....let there be peace. Jesus is the source for all peace.

We are encouraged to really do our best, all of us are able to make it happen, that is to know Jesus and let Him in our hearts. Ask people who have experienced Jesus, who really give their heart as a crib for baby Jesus , what it means to have Jesus in your heart.
This is the difference in life......a life of peace through Jesus or a life without Jesus that is without peace.

Happy Christmas to all and may the crib for baby Jesus be your heart.

The simplicity of life

Life seems that it has become complicated, hectic and problematic to live. Many people pass through this experience, and makes life difficult to live.

But at times I wonder, and ask, but way is life so difficult to live? Many answers will immediately come to mind....because of sin, because of wars, because of family problems. All these answers are real and true.

But have you ever wondered, that most people have lost and forgot about what it means to live a simple life.

The simplicity of life.....oh how wonderful it is ......how peaceful it can be......if only we are glad with what we have and not wanting more than we require.

The simplicity of life.....is possible if we trust in Him that He provides and that He cares for us.

By being closer to Jesus, the simplicity of life is a way of living through His love, experiencing His continuous grace.

The Journey


Life is a journey. It faces good and difficult moments. The way we live these experiences during a journey will lead us to our final destination.

The choice of this destination depends on our decisions and how we live our life. Jesus can help us with these decisions and how we live. He can show us the way to Salvation.

This destination is there for you.

Monthly Reflection by George Calleja - November 2013 - 'Precious Life'

Our life is very precious. Everyday of our lives is an opportunity to love.....to love the people around us.

Every situation is a challenge to love, to love our neighbour as Jesus loved. This is a challenge to be taken up by all, by every race, by every nation, by every individual. A challenge that brings hope, to nations...to everyone.

Life is precious....as Jesus showed us how precious it is. Through His Love, salvation is there for all, without any exceptions, but only if we love. To love is to give Jesus to others.

So the challenge for all of us is to love. To love in every situation.

Life is precious. Life depends on the love we give to others, the love to salvation.

His Love is great

Have you ever wondered how much His Love is great. Have you ever thought that when Jesus died on the cross, He died for you, because He Loves you. For sure His Love is great.

And through this love of His, Jesus is asking you to love in a continual way, to love everyone. To love through the Love He gave you, the Love by dying on the cross.

This is the love you are to give to others, that of dying for others.

Pray for peace

It is required that we pray, pray, pray for peace in the world. Many countries are in conflict and wars. Syria, Libya, Egypt and many more countries require prayer so that peace may reign.

But it is not only these countries that require peace.....family conflicts, marriage problems and other situations where there is no peace also require our prayer.

We are to pray through our lifestyle, that is by loving, loving, and loving in a constant way. By loving as Jesus taught us how, prayer will bring peace.

Monthly Reflection by George Calleja - October 2013 - ‘All you have to do is always to Love’

Everyday and in every moment of our lives we are called to Love.  Love is to be given to others in every situation we find ourselves in.  In the good experiences and even in the difficult situations we are to give Love to others.

It sounds easy…..but it is not that easy to do.  The Good news is that it is possible, that you give this Love to others.  This is possible through the Love of Christ……the Son of God.

Jesus is calling each and everyone of us to give His Love to others.  You can be that instrument, through Jesus Love, so that you give His Love to others.

Jesus is calling you, to love everyone, without any exceptions, just to Love, Love and Love.  I pray that you be able to overcome every hurdle you face that hinders you from Loving.  Always remember, that Jesus Loves you, and that through His grace you are able to Love the people you meet everyday.

So go, all you have to do is always to Love!

Spreading the Good News


Every moment is an occasion to spread the Good News. Every moment brings the opportunity to love other people by different good deeds. This is what everyone is challenged to do, that through the good deeds we spread the Good News.

The Good News is that Jesus died on the cross for everyone. He died for you and me, and for all.

If the good deeds are done through His love, that brings the Good News to the people, that Jesus loves us all.
