Merry Christmas

La via della festa

Pope Francis tells about them ost authentic sense of Christmas. The most affectionate greeting from themost communicative pope in the history of the Catholic Church. A book for celebrating Christmas and to understand the universal meaning of the Mercy Jubilee opening on 8 December 2015.

Waiting, birth, family, life, gift, pardon…but also cradle, stars, shepherds, the Three Wise Men.

These are the words in Pope Francis‘s Merry Christmas message. In this Holy Year of Mercy, he invites everyone to stop before the Child of Bethlehem and let his or her heart be moved.

Bergoglio speaks of tenderness and God’s capacity to penetrate the human soul through the light touch of love. The planet is once again devastated by wars, misery and persecution. Francis takes to heart the wounds of humanity and does not disdain to exhort men and women of goodwill who hope for a better world to let themselves be caressed by God because ‘God’s caresses give us peace, strength and the desire to change».
