BENEDICT XVI
"The angel Gabriel announces: 'The Spirit will come upon you, and the power of the Most High will overshadow you. Therefore the child to be born will be called holy, the Son of God'.”

The pope also used that time to issue his New Year greeting, and explained that every Christmas, the strength of God's presence in history is celebrated.
