Quote of the Day (Pope Francis, on Christmas as ‘God’s Meeting With His People’)

“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, quoted in Paul Brandeis Raushenbush, “Pope Francis:'Marxist Ideology Is Wrong, But I Know Many Marxists Who Are Good People,'” The Huffington Post, December 16, 2013
