The B.C. Catholic has Catholic News Agency's coverage of Pope Benedict XVI's Christmas message:
Pope Benedict outlined the power of faith and pointed to Christ coming in the flesh as the source of hope and peace for society in his annual “Urbi et Orbi” or, “The city and to the world,” message on Christmas day.

“God has done everything; he has done the impossible: he was made flesh,” the Pope emphasized.

“His all-powerful love has accomplished something which surpasses all human understanding: the Infinite has become a child, has entered the human family.”

During his remarks, the Pope also appealed for an end to violence in conflict ravaged countries in the world such as Syria and the Democratic Republic of Congo, called for a peaceful democratic transition in Egypt and urged respect for religious freedom in China.
