Pope Francis Christmas Message 2013

The light that this world offers us,
is an artificial one.
It may be a bright light,
brighter than the light of Christ,
bright like festive fireworks,
bright like the flash of a camera.
Instead, the light of Christ is meek;
it is a calm and peaceful light.
It is the light of that first Christmas Eve,
without any pretense.
It is this: it offers and gives peace…
it is a meek light with the power of meekness;
it is a light that speaks to the heart
it is also a light that offers the Cross.

Pope Francis
