Pope Francis during Angelus: Christmas is a time to “feel this wonder in meeting Jesus”

2015-12-21

During the final Angelus prayer before Christmas, Pope Francis said that Mary can help Christians rediscover wonder in the Gospel, especially during this season.

POPE FRANCIS
"May she help us to perceive the wonder, these three wonders: the other, history and the Church; so let it be with the birth of Jesus – the gift of gifts – the undeserved gift that brings us salvation, that it might also make us feel this wonder in meeting Jesus. We cannot have this wonder, however, we cannot meet Jesus, if we do not meet Him in the other, in history and in the Church.”

Although Christmas is near, the Pope kept his heart close to those who are suffering most. He praised some progress that has been made in Syria and Libya.

POPE FRANCIS
"I encourage everyone to continue, with a generous spirit of confident willingness, toward cessation of violence and a negotiated settlement leading to peace. I likewise think of nearby Libya, where the recent working agreement among the parties for a government of national unity invites hope for the future.”

The Pope also prayed that recent tensions between Nicaragua and Costa Rica would be resolved.

After speaking about the millions suffering from flooding in India, Pope Francis concluded the Angelus by reciting the Ave Maria for those who have been killed or affected in the country.
