Pope’s ‘State of the World’ Address

Once again providing proof that he cannot be tied to the usual categories so favoured by the media and various parts of the Church, Pope Francis delivered his annual address to the Diplomatic Corps accredited to the Holy See. Below you’ll find an analysis from John Allen, Jr via the Crux website, and below that the full text of the Pope’s address via the Vatican News website.

Both are well worth reading at the beginning of 2018.
