Christmas Eve mass at St. Peter’s Basilica

Pope Francis celebrated Christmas Eve mass at Saint Peter’s Basilica.

Many of the same Cardinals, Bishops and Priests who were severely criticized by the pontiff earlier this week were in St. Peter’s Basilica for the mass.

Several have spoken out saying Pope Francis was merely asking them to examine their consciences and use the Christmas season to heal.

Christmas Eve mass kicks off a busy few weeks for the pontiff, including the pope’s traditional Christmas day speech, New Year’s Eve Vespers and 2015 greetings a few hours later.
