Pope Francis has reminded this first day of 2019, that what gives substance to all the New Year’s wishes we exchange is God’s blessing
In his Angelus address, Pope Francis ushered in the New Year, which also marks the World Day of Prayer for Peace.
Today, eight days after Christmas, the Pope reminded, we celebrate the Holy Mother of God. “Like the shepherds of Bethlehem, we stand with our eyes fixed on her and on the Child she holds in her arms.”
“In this way, showing us Jesus, the Savior of the world, she, the mother, blesses us,” Francis said.
“She blesses the path of every man

Praise the Lord
