News.Va -- At the General Audience on Wednesday, December 18, Pope Francis spoke about the Birth of Jesus and invited the faithful to leave a spare place at their Christmas table to remember the poor and all those who are suffering on account of war.
Dear Brothers and Sisters, Good morning. Our meeting is taking place in the spiritual climate of Advent, which is made all the more intense by the Holy Christmas Novena we are experiencing in these days that lead us to the celebration of Christmas.
Therefore, today I would like to reflect with you on the Birth of Jesus, the feast of trust and of hope, which overcomes uncertainty and pessimism.
