I wish to first of all thank God Almighty for His bountiful blessings and steadfast love being relentlessly bestowed upon us as a people and nation, and to thank you most sincerely for the kind invitation which you extended to me and my dear wife Clara to attend the First Meeting of the Fourth Session of the Ninth Parliament and for me to address this Honourable House. My wife and I are delighted to be here and she joins me in thanking you for your kind and gracious invitation.
Theme: We Still Have Jesus - The Reason for the Season
My fellow Citizens and Residents of Dominica,
The nativity of the Christ Child took place under trying circumstances for the people of Judea and for His earthly parents, Mary and Joseph, as Herod the King of Judea had ordered that a census be taken and that all of the people had to go to their ancestral towns and villages to be registered. Mary and Joseph had to go from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to the City of David in Judea, called Bethlehem, because he, Joseph, was descended from the House of David.
I thank you most profoundly for the invitation which you have so graciously extended to me and my wife Clara to attend the First Meeting of the Third Session of the Ninth Parliament and for me to address this Honourable House. My wife Clara joins me in thanking you for your kind invitation.
