Christmas Message 2020 – Hon. Guy Joseph

Seasons Greetings to All Saint Lucians both here and abroad.

We cannot help but be joyous and happy during this time of year. Status does not matter because the first Noel the angels did say was to certain poor shepherds in fields as they lay.

All things work for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose … Romans 8:28

2020 has tested all that we are and have. Thankfully the challenges have brought out the best in us and our beloved Country. This is testament to the fact that we are a strong people. Through these difficult times we are standing strong. I want to thank all Saint Lucians both here and abroad and especially my constituents for adhering to the protocols and staying safe.

Christmas is a time of giving, so let us continue to give not because we have but because we understand what it is like to be without. Let us continue to be a source of comfort and encouragement even through the COVID-19 protocols.

I am taking this opportunity during this holiday season to express my gratitude to all the people of Castries South East for electing me as your representative. COVID- 19 has affected our interaction and our modes of showing affection (handshakes and hugs). Let us love anyway. Let it come from the heart especially this season and throughout 2021.

To the staff of the Ministry of Economic Development, Housing, Urban Renewal, Transport and Civil Aviation, Road Transport Board, Air Transport Licensing Board, National Housing Corporation, CSE Constituency Council, National Telecommunication Regulatory Commission, ECTEL, My Cabinet Colleagues and Members of Parliament – I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Prosperous 2021. To my wife, Family members both immediate and extended, I am extremely grateful for your continued understanding through the demands of my political life. My Christian Family from all denominations, your prayers and love are the greatest gifts that I receive on a daily basis. This is what keeps us going as a Government. Foreign Diplomats and all other visitors to our Island, I wish you a Merry Christmas and a Bright and Prosperous 2021.

Let COVID-19 be a bump in the road and not a stop or a detour. We will overcome. To you who have lost loved ones or have been in isolation, our hearts go out to you. Let us continue to support and pray for each other. Friends and Family are special. Let us use this holiday season to share love with each other. May this season of giving be the start of your better life.

Merry Christmas and Happy 2021 to everyone. God Bless You and Thank you
