Panaji; Dec 24, 2014 … Governor of Goa, Smt. Mridula Sinha has extended her hearty greetings and best wishes to the people of Goa, especially the Christian brethren on the joyous occasion of Christmas.
The Governor in her message has said on this auspicious occasion, we celebrate the birth of Lord Jesus Christ, who gave us the valuable and eternal message of peace, tolerance, compassion, love and brotherhood. It is an appropriate occasion for us to carry the spirit of Christmas to promote the values that Lord Jesus Christ professed and practiced for the benefit of humanity.
