In 1941 Beloved Edna Ballard said this to Her students:
'During the Seven Sacred Weeks of Christmas
we call to our Beloved Master Jesus and His Blessed Mother Mary to so intensify the Activity
of their Luminous Presence within and around all whom we desire to help, that Their
Assistance to the earth is increased every time we visualize Their Luminous Presence enfolding persons,
places, conditions and things.
Only in ACTION can we draw forth more of Their Power to assist others and
the more Power of Their Presence and Their Light Rays we draw, the greater does our own Power
become, to help and help and help those who are sincerely trying to do that which
is constructive throughout the world.
We ask that the Pure Love from our Beloved Jesus and Mary, His Mother flow forth to enfold
all constantly with Their Personal Rays and still discord forever.
May the' Light of God that never fails' in the Power of a Thousand Suns, now burst upon the world
and compel Peace on Earth, Good Will to man forever, forever and forever.
Yes, this Christmas may Peace on Earth, Good Will to man
become an Eternal Reality upon Earth and set mankind eternally free!'
Mrs. G. W. Ballard and Donald Ballard

NOW....IN THIS MOMENT, WOULD YOU JOIN ME AS WE TURN OUR ATTENTION
TO THAT 'ALL-KNOWING' AND 'ALL-POWERFUL 'GOD', CREATOR OF ALL THAT IS', AS WE ASK THAT
A 'GOD-COMMAND' BE GIVEN THAT 'ALL OF LIFE' MAY BE AWAKENED TO THE AUTHORITY AND POWER
AND LOVE OF 'UNIVERSAL CHRISTNESS' IN ALL ITS VARIED FORMS ...
THAT SOON ALL UNDERSTAND THAT HUMANITY MUST TREAT 'GOD CREATED LIFE' WITH RESPECT...
WITH REVERENCE...WITH LOVE....AND SOON MAY ALL UNDERSTAND THAT THERE IS A
PRICE....A HEAVY PRICE WE PAY WHEN WE FAIL TO BE 'OUR
BROTHERHOOD IS THE KEY NOTE OF THE CHRIST ENERGY AND IT MUST COME THROUGH
AND FROM EACH ONE OF US.
While Christmas is often considered a Holiday special to 'Christians', this Beloved Being
we know as 'Jesus' came with a Message of Brotherhood for all mankind....and that Message will, if accepted,
(yes, we have to 'accept' It and use It ) finally put to rest all the ancient hatreds ....
And many People, knowing this, have for two thousand years preserved This Message of Love
and celebrated It the world over in many ways by the different cultures who have understood the underlying
Message to pay homage to the Beloved 'Christ, Jesus'
and to the Universal and Immortal 'Christness' of each one of us
and which, if allowed, guides our human lives in the Pathway of Peace, Love and Brotherhood.
A POWERFUL, TRANSCENDENT GIFT OF HIS HEART LIGHT OF 'INFINITE GODNESS' IS GIVEN TO US.
IT IS PURE LOVE....IT IS PURE JOY THAT ENFOLDS THE PLANET....IT IS PURE CHRISTNESS....
AND IT BLESSES EVERY SOUL WHO WILL RECEIVE IT.
MAY WE ACCEPT AND EXPAND THIS PRECIOUS GIFT OF LOVE
FROM THE HEART FLAME OF THE BELOVED 'JESUS'.
