Pope Francis’ Address to the Curia


As is customary, Pope Francis addressed the members of the Roman Curia yesterday to extend his Christmas greetings to those who work to assist him and the Universal Church. As is also customary, Pope Francis’s address was more than a simple wishing of “Happy Christmas” – the address also unfolded the Pope’s thinking on the role of the Roman Curia.
