Via Francigena

Christmas 2022

Here is the message of greetings from the Bishop of Langres for this Christmas 2022:

A little snow has covered the countryside, and I am enjoying staying warm at home. This is not the time to set out on the Via Francigena to face the rigours of winter. But, a few thousand kilometres away, people at war have no way to keep warm and must fight the cold and the anxiety with all means at hand. I think of the child of Bethlehem, fragile and destitute, whose birth is a sign of hope and light. “Peace on earth to the people God loves” sang the angels.

What if I took advantage of this time of pause to work for peace, in my family, my village or my neighbourhood, my professional activity? Great causes begin with small gestures…

Joseph de Metz-Noblat, Bishop of Langres
President of Spiritualitas in Francigenam
