Today overlooking St. Peter’s Square, Pope Francis gave an Angelus Address on the faith associated with the story of Jesus’ birth (full text, full video, summary video). Also as part of the address, he apparently blessed hundreds of baby Jesus figurines which people brought to St. Peter’s Square for the traditional Bambinelli Sunday blessing. Also in the address, Pope Francis praised various nations for making progress establishing peace accords, and said a Hail Mary with the gathering for victims of flooding in India.
Additionally, he made one appointment and sent a tweet:
However grave our sin, God responds with total forgiveness. (link)
And that’s the Pope Francis news for the day!
