I caught a little of the Pope’s Christmas speech, there was a part about the “softening of self centred hearts” and urging nations to make peace. He seems to be a pretty good guy, I saw some footage of him bowing down to kiss an african leader’s foot in greeting, quite humble.
I also saw some of the (British) Queen’s Speech, it was a little bit of a contrast with the pope’s since it was much more about the U.K. and the royal family. I was a little sad that she didn’t use the opportunity to focus more outside of Britain but I guess it is par for the course.
Have you come across any other good Christmas or New Year’s messages?
