Christmas Message

Pope Francis preached the goodness and tenderness of God, as he celebrated the first Christmas since his election in March 2013.

“Let us allow our hearts to be touched, let us allow ourselves to be warmed by the tenderness of God; we need his caress,” the Pope said.

“God is peace. Let us ask him to help us to be peacemakers each day, in our life, in our families, in our cities and nations, in the whole world. Let us allow ourselves to be moved by God’s goodness."

He continued,“My hope is that everyone will feel God’s closeness, live in his presence, love him and adore him”.
