National Catholic Register
Pope Francis gives a blessing after he delivers his Angelus address to pilgrims gathered in St. Peter’s Square on Dec. 26.

During the Angelus on the occasion of the feast of St. Stephen — the first Christian martyr — the Holy Father renewed his call for peace and brought attention to the persecution that Christians are facing around the world.
