In his Christmas Eve Mass, Pope Francis said

“Let us ask ourselves: Do I really need all these material objects and complicated recipes for living? Can I manage without all these unnecessary extras and live a life of greater simplicity?

“For many people, life’s meaning is found in possessing, in having an excess of material objects.

An insatiable greed marks all human history, even today, when, paradoxically,

a few dine luxuriantly while all too many go without the daily bread needed to survive.”
