Welcome God’s Christmas surprises, Pope tells audience
December 19, 2018
CWN Editor's Note: At his weekly public audience on December 19 (video), Pope Francis said that celebrating Christmas entails “welcoming on earth the surprises of heaven. The Holy Father told the audience, held indoors in the Paul VI auditorium, that we celebrate Christmas best “if like Joseph, we make room for silence; if, like Mary, we say ‘Here I am’ to God; if, like Jesus, we are close to those who are alone; if, like the shepherds, we go out of our enclosures to be with Jesus.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
