‘Finally, I greet the young people, the elderly, the sick and the newlyweds,” Pope Francis said November 27, 2019, at his General Audience in St. Peter’s Square. “The Liturgical Season of Advent will begin next Sunday.
“I will go to Greccio to pray in the place of the first Nativity scene made by Saint Francis of Assisi and to send to all believing people a letter to understand the meaning of the Crib. I hope for all of you that in Advent the expectation of the Saviour may fill your heart with hope and find you joyful in the service of the neediest. Thank you.”
