VATICAN - Christmas, the "feast of faith that is the feast of man and creation" Pope says [AN]

On World Day of Peace, Benedict XVI goes back to his Message to speak about “human ecology”. We must rediscover the face of God in order to see all living creatures, men and nature, as a “reflection of the face of the Creator” so that we love and take care of them. Around the world, the iconic figure of the “Mother of God of Tenderness” is disfigured by the “painful images of so many children and mothers at the mercy of war and violence, living as refugees, exiles or forced migrants, their faces hollowed by hunger and disease, disfigured by pain and desperation.” Education and the rejection of nihilism are the path towards true ecology.
