CWN Editor's Note: On January 1—the Octave Day of Christmas and Solemnity of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Mother of God—Pope Francis presided at Mass in St. Peter’s Basilica (video, booklet).
The Pontiff, who entered and left the basilica in a wheelchair, preached the homily; Cardinal Pietro Parolin, the Holy See’s Secretary of State, was the principal celebrant.
