Quote of the Day (Pope Francis I, on Christmas as ‘A Mystery of Consolation’)

“Christmas is God’s meeting with his people. It is also a consolation, a mystery of consolation. After the midnight mass I have often spent an hour or so alone in the chapel before celebrating the dawn mass. I felt a profound feeling of consolation and peace.”—Pope Francis I quoted in Paul Brandeis Raushenbush, “Pope Francis: 'Marxist Ideology Is Wrong, But I Know Many Marxist Who Are Good People,'” Huffington Post, December 14, 2013
