▪ The Christmas Night liturgy in St Peter’s Basilica was attended by many pilgrims from all over the world. While presiding at the Holy Eucharist, Pope Francis in his homily gave an encouraging message focused on the theme of God’s grace: bringing salvation to all and shining on our world. The Pope described this grace as divine love, the love that changes lives, renews history, liberates from evil, it fills hearts with peace and joy. Furthermore, “Christmas reminds us that God continues to love us all, even the worst of us because we are precious in His eyes. His love is unconditional and does not change; it does not depend on us. His love it is not fickle, it is faithful. It is patient. In the beauty of God’s love, we also discover our own beauty, for we are the beloved of God. In His eyes we are beautiful, not for what we do, but for what we are”.

"Our relationships with one another should be marked by a love that bears all, believes all and hopes for all, a love that is neither conceited nor jealous, which hurts no one, nor is embittered or resentful. It is never discouraged but remains patient and kind. It rejoices with others and shares their suffering. It is with this kind of love that we should help and support one another." (OWL, 90)
