Prime Minister Philip J. Pierre and opposition leader Allen Chastanet both struck a hopeful note amid the current challenges facing Saint Lucia in messages on their official Facebook pages on Christmas Day.

“This morning, I am attending Christmas Day Mass, which is always very special to me. I get a chance to reflect on the hope that we have in Jesus Christ and to fellowship with the parishioners of the Sacred Heart Parish in Marchand,” Pierre wrote.

“I want to wish you and your family a Merry Christmas. Let us remember to serve the less fortunate in our communities, especially on this day of merriment. Please be safe and may God bless us all all,” the PM said.

Meanwhile, opposition leader Allen Chastanet observed that 2021 had been a challenging year for everyone due to COVID-19.

In this regard, Chastanet expressed sympathy to the families of those who have died, declaring that it cannot be easy, especially at this time of the year for being in communion with family.

“Sometimes it is hard to see past the darkness but I call on you to have faith that this darkness will be lifted and we will return to some semblance of a normal life,” the Micoud South PM and former Prime Minister stated.

“We saint Lucians are resilient. We can get through this. We will overcome the scourge of COVID if we work together for the greater good,” Chastanet declared.

And he expressed that the sacrifice today of social distancing and following other established protocols will benefit all in the long run.

  1. When I heard these things,I sat down and wept.
    For some days I mourned and fasted and prayed before the God of heaven.
    Then,at the evening sacrifice I rose myself abasment, and fell on my knees with my hands spread out to the heaven (to the LORD)and prayed :
    “O my God, I am too ashamed and disgraced to lift up my face to you my God, because our sins are higher than our heads and our guilts has reach to the heaven . From the days of our forfathers until now,our guilts has become great.
    Because of our sins,we our leaders and officials have led the way in this”unfaithfulness”.
    Though we are slaves,our God has not deserted us in bondage (sin)
    But now, for a bref moment,the LORD our GOD has been gracious in heaven. The gracious hand of our God is on everyone who looks to him,but his great 🔥 and anger is against all who forsake him”.

  2. In my opinion all politicians are rich and are also good friends. Most importantly they are excellent actors. The public only see the acting.

  3. @ Prober. Very true. And the politicians need there to always have poor people because during election that’s the people they take advantage of.

  4. It has always been tuff on some families, some eat to death and some starve to death, while some used the poor to get richer the poorer die trying to get rich. Life has more value than anything and Christmas should be about the ones who you can feel, touch, see and celebrate with whenever and however. Don’t put material and vanities before life because at the end of the day we all end up in the same place that is 6 feet under or evaporated into ashes. One love one peace. Happy Christmas.
