“The man is greedy and insatiable,” said the Pope. “The Have is not the Accumulation of things seems to be for many the meaning of life.” The Pontiff lamented the resulting inequalities between people. “An insatiable greed by the history of mankind draws to the paradoxes of today that a few of the feasting sumptuously, and so many have no bread to live on.”

The Christ-child, born in a stable and laid in a manger, filling it with a different model of life: “do Not devour, and hamsters, but to give and to share.” He appealed to the faithful to ask themselves: “can I dispense with many unnecessary trivialities, to choose a simpler life?”
