Pope Francis exchanges Christmas greetings with the Roman Curia

Pope Francis exchanged Christmas greeting with the Roman Curia on Friday, reflecting on both the Church's joys and afflictions.

“Christmas”, the Holy Father said, “fills us with joy and makes us certain that no sin will ever be greater than God’s mercy”. He took St. Paul’s words to the Romans (13:12) as his focus: “The night is far gone, the day is near. Let us then lay aside the works of darkness and put on the armour of light."
