The General adds:
You will see here my Christmas message. At the same time as sending you my best wishes and prayers for a wonderful Christmas, can I ask all to continue to pray for the many millions of people caught up today in war zones all over the world.
The terrible scenes from Aleppo in Syria have been confronting us for many months, and we can barely imagine the horror for families affected. But, sadly, Aleppo is not an isolated situation. In so many parts of our world there are serious conflicts and many casualties.
We remember all those affected in our prayers.
