  • Description

    POPE PAUL, IN HIS CHRISTMAS BLESSING "TO THE CITY AND THE TO THE WORLD", SAID TODAY (SUNDAY) THE VIETNAM TRUCE SHOWED HOW SAD WAR WAS AND HOW DESIRABLE WAS PEACE.

    SPEAKING FROM THE BALCONY OF ST PETER'S BASILICA, WHERE HE CELEBRATED A CHRISTMAS DAY MASS, HE WISHED EVERYONE HAPPINESS, PROSPERITY AND PEACE IN HIS BLESSING - URBI ET ORBI, TO THE CITY AND THE WORLD.

    HE EXTENDED HIS GREETINGS TO THOSE WHO ARE TIRED, THOSE WHO SUFFER, THOSE WHO WEEP AND THOSE WHO DESPAIR.

    THE POPE ALSO DIRECTED HIS BLESSING TO THOSE "CONSTRICTED IN THEIR LEGITIMATE RELIGIOUS LIBERTY".

    "SUCH SUFFERINGS, SUCH MISFORTUNES DO NOT DETER OUR WISHES TODAY BUT MAKE THEM WARMER AND MORE CONFIDENT. TO YOU OUR DEAREST SONS NEAR AND FAR AWAY WE SEND OUR APOSTOLIC BLESSING", HE SAID.
