Christmas has been ‘taken hostage’ by Materialism – Pope Francis. 

A world often obsessed with gifts, feasting and self-centredness needs more humility.

“Jesus was born rejected by some and regarded by many others with indifference. Today also the same indifference can exist, when Christmas becomes a feast where the protagonists are ourselves, rather than Jesus; when the lights of commerce cast the light of God into the shadows; when we are concerned for gifts, but cold toward those who are marginalised.”

“This worldliness has taken Christmas hostage. It needs to be freed.”
