Card Pope Francis is sending out for Christmas

This is the Christmas card that Pope Francis is sending out this year.

It is an drawing of the scene of the Birth of Jesus, an image full of tenderness in which the Holy Family appears, an ox and a mule.

On the back, his signature appears and a Latin phrase from the Gospel of St. John: 'Vidimus gloriam eius,' meaning 'We saw His glory.'

The aesthetic of the greeting is very similar to that of previous years. It always features Christmas scenes with the Blessed Mother, the Child and St. Joseph.
