I am very happy to be able to eat a good meal on Christmas Day. to have gifts under the tree or eat a piece of nougat in a family with a large open fire. An idyllic replica of a First World irresponsible, with a selfish society that only remembers those who do not go so well when they go on the news. No judge has called for responsibility to the financial magnates or large speculative fortunes of the world. For even more details, read what Sir Richard Branson says on the issue. Have you asked for the resignation of the chairmen of the banks? What about housing developers? Meanwhile, the money all goes into the coffers of the big banks in a bailout plan still does not work and that does not reach the men. Social partners demand that the money reaches families and businesses vulnerable but banks do not dare to open the door of the loans. Journalists and economic experts explain that the banks have not yet bottomed out and they need the money for the future. Nobody knows yet can not foresee the magnitude of the holes in the banks. And in this world of consumption and of crisis, big numbers and waste, we forget the most vulnerable and excluded.

Today, more than 1,200 million people go hungry and their situation has been aggravated by the ongoing food crisis. Millions of people have no access to education and health. Thousands of children are exploited in jobs that nobody wants for a bowl of rice. The teachings of that rabbi, Jesus of Nazareth, who was born in Bethlehem, 25 December, light the world around us. Today more than ever we need the true spirit of Christmas: sharing with which it has. The spirit of solidarity.
