25 DECEMBER 2014. Today the Church and all of Christendom celebrate the birth of our Savior, Christ the Lord. He who was in the beginning, has taken flesh upon Himself and been born of the womb of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Sent by the Father to forgive us our sins, let us always praise Him who has loved us with such heavenly generosity beyond our knowing.
Offered in solidarity with our Holy Father Pope Francis, his prayer intention for March 2017:
Support for Persecuted Christians.That persecuted Christians may be supported by the prayers and material help of the whole Church.
BENEDICTUS XVI, PONTIFEX EMERITUS
Open Wide the Doors to Christ
