satellite telecasts of Papal Christmas celebrations have been
broadcast since 1974 thanks to the efforts of the Knights of Columbus
who have continued to cover the costs of the satellite transmissions.
The Vatican’s Internet Office now also “webcasts” the Christmas
celebrations via audio-video streaming, available through a link
accessible on the Vatican’s homepage at: www.vatican.va.

“Come you nations and adore the Lord.” With Mary, Joseph
and the shepherds, with the Magi and the countless host
of humble worshippers of the new-born Child, who down the
centuries have welcomed the mystery of Christmas, let us
too, brothers and sisters from every continent, allow the
light of this day to spread everywhere
