I have been publishing the ‘Catholic Press PhotoChristmas Greeting, typically featuring the pope, yearly since 2008 — albeit on my ‘popes-and-papacy‘.

Alessia Giuliani who heads Catholic Press Photo created by her father.

They are a Rome-based agency and they follow the pope around daily. A very nice bunch of folks too led by Alessia Giuliani.

This is this year’s card.

The top part, of course, is easy: “Merry Christmas and Happy New Year”.

The bottom part, signed by ‘Papa Francesco‘ is from the Pope’s Palm Sunday, 2013, homily for the XXVIII World Youth Day on March 24, 2013.

It says: “Ours is not a joy born of having many possessions, but from having encountered a Person: Jesus“.

Here is the Homily containing that quote directly from the Vatican.
