    POPE PAUL TODAY (WEDNESDAY) EXPRESSED A WISH THAT CHRISTMAS WOULD BRING ABOUT A REBIRTH OF PEACE AND CONCORD IN THE WORLD. HE WAS GIVING HIS TRADITIONAL CHRISTMAS MID-DAY BLESSING IN ST. PETERS SQUARE, VATICAN CITY.

    POPE PAUL GAVE HIS CHRISTMAS BLESSING TO THE CITY AND THE WORLD AFTER CELEBRATING MASS IN ST. PETERS BASILICA BEFORE THOUSANDS OF PILGRIMS.

    ONLY A FEW HOURS EARLIER, HE HAD RETURNED FROM TARANTO, IN SOUTHERN ITALY, WHERE HE CELEBRATED MIDNIGHT MASS WITH WORKERS AND THEIR FAMILIES IN A STEEL PLANT.

    HE SAID HIS WISH THAT PEACE AND CONCORD MIGHT BE BORN AGAIN AMONG MEN WHO WERE STILL ENGAGED IN UNENDING CONFLICT WAS A WISH FOR THE CHURCH AND A WISH FOR THE CHURCH AND A WISH FOR THE WHOLE WORLD.
