Pope Francis giving his address to the city of Rome and to the world. | Image source: South China Morning Post As Christmas approaches, we await once more for the address given by the Pope to faithful members of the Church. This message, known as Urbi et Orbi (lit. “to the city and to the world”) is an address given during Easter and Christmas. It is broadcasted worldwide. The Pope grants blessings to those who are present during the address and to those who are listening intently. But why don’t we look back on the message Pope Francis gave Christmas last year? As we celebrate the occasion that is Christmas, the meaningful message last year’s address brought us is still very much relevant.
