Pope Francis: Christmas message - Peace to the World
Pope Francis made an impassioned plea for peace on Sunday in a world broken by conflict, terrorism and injustice. In his 'Urbi et Orbi" (to the city of Rome and to the whole World) message, the Pope wished Christmas peace for people scarred by wars and for those who have lost loved ones to terrorism. He singled out Syria, the Holy Land, South Sudan and Nigeria, the Congo, Eastern Ukraine, Colombia, Myanmar and the Korean Peninsula.
