Nativity 'permeates all of history,' Pope reminds audience

Catholic World News - December 21, 2011

At his weekly public audience on December 21—his last public audience before Christmas—Pope Benedict XVI urged the faithful not to let the “profound religious significance” of the Nativity be “overshadowed by external factors.”

The coming of Christ “touches and permeates all of history,” the Pope told the crowd in the Paul VI auditorium. The celebration of Christmas acknowledges the awesome reality that “Eternity entered into the confines of time and space, making it possible to meet Him today.”
