St. Kitts’ Prime Minister Douglas wishes his countrymen to nuture inner peace this Christmas

BASSETERRE, St. Kitts – St. Kitts and Nevis Prime Minister Hon. Dr. Denzil L. Douglas is wishing his country use the celebration of Christmas 2008 to nuture inner-peace to achieve positive goals and to use the example of Joseph and Mary to nurture strong and stable societies.

“Across cultures and religions and continents, then, since the dawn of time, inner peace has always been viewed as one of life’s richest and most precious blessings because inner peace is so essential for all that is truly good to occur – whether in the lives of individuals, or in the fate of nations,” Dr. Douglas said in his traditional Christmas Message on radio and television.

“Within the sound of my voice on this Christmas Day, I know, are individuals in a wide range of circumstances. There are the young and the old. The rich and the poor. The healthy and the ill. The joyous and the sad. But on this Christmas Day, that special verse applies to us all: ‘Be still, and know that I am God’ reminds us of the importance of calming our hearts and our souls……controlling our anxieties and our rage….halting the vulgarities….the indifference….the rivalries and fears……and all of the excesses that lead to the problems that are breaking societies apart, all over the world. We must, then, seek this self-control, this inner calm, as the first step in our pursuit of other goals,” Prime Minister Douglas.
