A Child of Revolutionary Tenderness

Pope Francis presided at the Christmas Eve Mass at St Peter’s Basilica during the night of Christmas Eve, and his homily was a powerful and direct one. The full text can be found below, but the Pope’s final paragraph is indicative of all that the Pope said:

Moved by the joy of the gift, little Child of Bethlehem, we ask that your crying may shake us from our indifference and open our eyes to those who are suffering. May your tenderness awaken our sensitivity and recognize our call to see you in all those who arrive in our cities, in our histories, in our lives. May your revolutionary tenderness persuade us to feel our call to be agents of the hope and tenderness of our people.
