Custos of Holy Land: Christmas message

Catholic World News - December 24, 2010

The Franciscan superior in the Holy Land, whose friars minister at the principal Christian shrines, has released his annual Christmas message.

Father Pierbattista Pizzaballa writes:

Summoned by faith to wait for him in glory, Christmas fixes our attention on God: his infinite wait for humanity to find room for him in daily history, in everyday life, in the ordinary solidarity that Jesus himself asked us for, assuring us: I will be with you every day until the end of the world; also telling us where to find his eyes and hands, where to walk together and from where to look at the horizon from which he will return: You always have the poor with you.
