Merry Christmas From RealCatholicBlog And A Christmas Message From Pope Benedict XVI
Merry Christmas from myself, Brother John and the team at RealCatholicBlog.com and RealCatholic.com, our online Catholic book and merchandise store. We offer our prayers for a joyous, blessed and merry Christmas season and a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year. We look forward 2011 for continued renewal and a further growth in the Faith as individuals and for the Church Universal, and for a rebirth of a culture of life throughout society. We ask for your prayers in these causes.
Why do we look forward to Christmas? Why should we? Please watch this short video from Pope Benedict XVI’s last general audience before Christmas.
Pope Benedict: The coming of Jesus is intended to “teach us to see and love events, the world and everything around us, with the same eyes of God. … The Word became a baby to help us understand how God acts, so we can let ourselves be ever more transformed by His goodness and His infinite mercy. …”
