Pope Francis December 31 at Vespers and the Te Deum in St. Peter's Basilica Full text

“We are called to encounter others and to listen to their existence, to their cry for help. To listen is already an act of love!” The Pope has urged Catholics “to have time for others, to dialogue… [and] to witness with deeds more than with words the new life of the Gospel”: actions he called “truly a service of love that changes the reality” both of society and the Church.
