Mysuru: Christmas is all about brotherhood and peace. Christmas is celebrated in most countries and December 25 is an important date in the world’s calendar of events.

Staying in line with the tradition, most churches in the Heritage City were brightly lit up in the nights of Friday December 24 itself. Braving the winter cold, Christians made their way into the nearest church to offer prayers.

Mysuru Bishop Dr. K. A. William took part in the rituals at St. Philomena’s Church. He had a special message for the people. “During the previous two years, we could not celebrate the festival due to the pandemic situation. Fortunately, this year, the situation is conducive though we can’t take the virus for granted. I advise one and all to follow the Covid guidelines to stay safe. Jesus Christ spread the message of peace and love. We shall pray for the welfare of the human race.”

The rituals that began at 12.00 pm on Friday continued till morning. People offered prayers to Infant Jesus. Hardwick Church in Lakshmipuram, St. Bartholomew Church, Wesley Church on BM Road and St. Joseph’s Church wore a festive look with scores of immaculately-dressed people adding to the bonhomie. All the churches were screened by a bomb diffusion squad before letting people in. Prayers were held in Kannada, English and Tamil languages.

District In-charge Minister S. T. Somashekar extended Christmas greetings to the people of Karnataka and hoped it would usher in better things.
