At the Angelus, Pope Francis speaks of the desire to free oneself from sin: rejecting "the worldly mentality, excessive esteem for comforts, for pleasure, for well-being, for wealth "; renouncing the "superfluous and seeking the essential", like the Precursor. “Conversion is a grace, therefore, to be asked of God with strength”. "The Christmas tree and the crib ... signs of hope, especially in this difficult time". "There is no pandemic that can extinguish" the light that God has ignited in the world.
