Pope Benedict’s Christmas Eve message on BBC (link to full text)
December 24, 2010
Pope Benedict XVI offered the “Thought for the Day” on BBC Radio 4 on Christmas Eve morning. “The child that was born in Bethlehem did indeed bring liberation, but not only for the people of that time and place-- he was to be the Saviour of all people throughout the world and throughout history,” the Pope said. “And it was not a political liberation that he brought, achieved through military means: rather, Christ destroyed death for ever and restored life by means of his shameful death on the Cross.”
