Pope Encouraging Humble Christmas

Christmas Tree

Pope Francis is inviting everyone to have “a more humble Christmas” this year.

On Wednesday, the pope asked people to consider spending less on gifts and parties in order to help the people of Ukraine.

“It is good to celebrate Christmas, to have parties — but let’s lower the level of Christmas spending,” he encouraged. “Let’s send what we save to the Ukrainian people, who are in need, suffering so much; they go hungry, they feel the cold, and so many die because there are no doctors, nurses at hand."
