Pope to participants in Christmas contest: Use talents for the cause of peace

“We have lost the sense of wonder, and we need to rediscover it,” the Pope said. “Let there be wonder at the basis, wonder in the face of the unthinkable: a God who became flesh, who became a helpless child, born of a Virgin, in a cave, and whose cradle was a manger for animals. “
