Pre-Christmas charity bazaar in Munich, 8-12-2019
The charity is not so much a material help as a spiritual support of one’s neighbor. The spiritual support, first of all, is a non-condemnation of one’s neighbor and respect for their human dignity.
We want to be better, we want to be cleaner, we want to be happier. When we are full of happiness, we share it with others with joy. But when a trouble knocks on our door, the manifestation of virtue and charity help us, with a pure heart, to cope with an uninvited guest.
And we also want to believe in miracles. In December, before Christmas, the whole time period is shrouded in the lights of light, hope and love. This time also includes the Navity Fast. We clean ourselves physically and mentally. We try to support our soul and the souls of other people, in word and deed.
Charity is one of the wonderful ways to show mercy.
So, on December 8, the pre-christmas charity bazaar has opened its doors, like in the previous years. There were many handmade goods pleasing an eye: a shop of Ukrainian souvenirs, knitwear, handmade soap, beautiful jewelry, Christmas tree decorations, toys and dolls. Eyes are dazzled by such diversity and beauty.
The children could choose surprise gifts from a large box. For tea, the lean baking was offered, that pleases the bazaar visitors every year.
There was a lively and festive atmosphere. Everything was so kind. The eyes of people shone with joy. It was a pleasure to see this.
All together, we have collected a large sum for Masha, Vanya and Sergey. This will help the children to continue the treatment and recover more quickly.
More and more kind hearts are responding to such events. This makes it so warm inside.
And next year, before Easter, there will be the next charity bazaar. We are waiting for you with joy and impatience, for all of you who are compassionate and open your hearts in the name of others.
Let’s do good in word and deed! The opportunities are always present.
Let God help you!
