Christmas wishes from the Foundation


(25/12/16) “Again and again it astonishes us that God makes himself a child so that we may love him, so that we may dare to love him, and as a child trustingly lets himself be taken into our arms. It is as if God were saying: I know that my glory frightens you, and that you are trying to assert yourself in the face of my grandeur. So now I am coming to you as a child, so that you can accept me and love me”.

Thanks to the words Benedict XVI said during Christmas Eve in 2012, the Joseph Ratzinger – Benedict XVI Vatican Foundation wishes you a Holy Christmas and a Happy New Year.
