Each one of us has a possibility to help the children who are in trouble. Arent we living here on this Earth in order to help each other?

Sometimes, it seems that in one's life everything is going well. A wife, children, apartment, a car all one needs, nothing to complain about! The man has his work and his friends, but sometimes, as he is watching the marvellous sunset, or listening to beautiful music, or reading wise books, he realises that there is something important in this life that he lacks. He realises that the Creator has created all this beauty, including people. And with every particle of his body he accepts this Revelation given to him from Heaven. If we disturb unity and beauty of nature on Earth, we disturb this divine harmony

A new day comes, and the old sinful human life continues. But hope for the better is still there.

Our appeal is to you, our friend: do not let the best that you have inside perish!
