Empathy for Those Facing Hardship

King Charles III's Christmas Speech
King Charles III reflected on the struggles others are facing during his annual Christmas speech. The pre-recorded address was broadcast on Monday, December 25, with Charles, 75, using the tradition to remind others of an important message.
Charles continued: “Their presence meant so much to us both and emphasized the meaning of coronation itself: above all, a call to us all to serve one another: to love and care for all.
Service also lies at the heart of the Christmas story — the birth of Jesus who came to serve the whole world, showing us by his own example how to love our neighbor as ourselves.”
Charles also addressed the “increasingly tragic conflict” taking place around the world.
The king noted that many may be facing hardship this holiday season, adding, “Throughout the year, my family have witnessed how people of all ages are making a difference to their communities.
“I pray that we can also do all in our power to protect each other. The words of Jesus seem more than ever relevant: ‘Do to others as you would have them do to you,'” he shared.
This marks the second time Charles delivered a message on Christmas Day since assuming the British throne following the death of Queen Elizabeth II.
