A Message From Pope Francis

       As the decade comes to an end, Pope Francis focuses on change. “Christian life is a journey, a pilgrimage. The history of the Bible is a journey, marked by constantly new beginnings,” Pope Francis said on Dec. 21st.“It entails decisions that rapidly transform our ways of living, of relating to one another, of communicating and thinking, of how different generations relate to one another and how we understand and experience faith and science.”
        Pope Francis insisted on the centrality of protecting immigrants and refugees, who represent all those who are “discarded from globalized society.” He insisted these marginalized groups, “represent a voice crying in the wilderness of our humanity” and that Jesus lying in the manger “has the face of our brothers and sisters most in need.”
