About 4,000 people attended the Pope's weekly general audience at the Vatican's Paul VI Hall. There, the Pope talked about divine intervention as seen throughout history.
The best example of this, said the Pope, is how Jesus embodied God, and through Him, people can now recognize his message and follow it. BENEDICT XVI“In this Advent season, we are invited to contemplate this progressive revelation of God’s saving plan and to realize that, in Christ, God continues to drawn near to us.”
The Pope then described that revelation and interaction with God, as a conversation of love that inspires and brings hope.
And now, through religious celebrations, the Pope said that conversation and reflection is kept alive, year after year. BENEDICT XVI“Amid the distractions and superficiality of our world, may we learn, in faith, hope and love, to recognize and bear witness to His presence.”
Since December 12th is the Feast day of Our Lady of Guadalupe, also known as the 'Queen of Mexico,' this group played typical melodies from the state of Michoacan. In fact as a gift, that very state gave the Pope a unique nativity scene made made out of wax.
