Christmas more than a ‘sentimental festival’, Pope says
December 23, 2020
CWN Editor's Note: Christmas “should not be reduced to a merely sentimental or consumerist festival,” Pope Francis said in his weekly audience on December 23. The Pope remarked that Christmas “has become a universal feast, and even those who do not believe perceive the appeal of this occasion.” But for Christians it is more than a holiday; the feast commemorates “a decisive event.” The Pope encouraged the faithful “to contemplate a little, in silence, before the creche.”The above note supplements, highlights, or corrects details in the original source (link above).
