  • Description

    Pope John 23 filmed christmas pre-eve at the Consistory Hall, Vatican, to receive greetings from French Eugene Cardinal Tisserant, Dean of the Sacred College. Then the Pope, making his first Christmas message, appealed for unity among Christians and for peace.

    The Pope said in places where the belief in a supernatural life were weakened there would be no ear for his message of peace and unity. There was slavery in countries dominated by an atheistic and materialistic system. Such places would end the way of the tower of Babel.

    Pope John was due to visit the jail of Rome Dec 26 - the first Pope in modern history to do so.
