The leader of the roman Catholic church, Pope Francis, has given the world, especially Christians, his Christmas message.
Giving his sermon at St Peter's Basilica in the Vatican City in Italy on Wednesday, Decemeber 25, the pope hinged his message on unconditional love from God to mankind, Aljazeera reports.
The cleric said that even in man's evil ways, God continues to show his supreme love and limitless mercy.
He said: "God continues to love us all, even the worst of us. You may have mistaken ideas, you may have made a complete mess of things, but the Lord continues to love you."
The pontiff is expected to give his seventh Christmas day mass to the entire world by noon of Wednesday in front of St Peter's Square.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng reported that Christians around the world gathered to watch the pope as he led the Christmas Eve mass in St Peter’s Basilica.
During the procession, Pope told believers that God loves everyone irrespective of who they are. The choir at St Peter’s sang the popular Christmas hymn, The First Noel.
The Pope also unveiled a new statue of baby Jesus in a nativity scene at the foot of the altar, as he told everyone that the birth of Jesus is a reminder that Christ loves all.
The mass will be marking the beginning of a busy schedule for Pope as he will also give a Christmas speech, head a New Year’s Eve vigil, and January 1 mass.
