Pope Francis Celebrated Christmas Eve Mass, Prays for Peace

Pope Francis is celebrating Christmas Eve Mass in a packed St. Peter’s Basilica, rounding out a year marked by his pleas for the world to better protect the innocent people caught up in wars, migrations and abject poverty.

As the Sistine Chapel choir sang “Gloria” and the basilica’s bells rang out in Rome, Pope Francis led the procession to the altar behind Cardinals clothed in Golden vestments for the service celebrating the birth of Jesus.

Saturday’s late night Mass is the 1st major event of the Christmas season for Pope Francis, which will included his Noon blessing Christmas day.

Merry Christmas
