Papal Mass for the Octave of Christmas

Each year the Holy Church celebrates on January 1st, the Octave Day of Christmas, a day on which we recall the Divine Motherhood of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the giving of the Holy name to the Infant Christ, and the Circumcision of our Lord, who even as an infant began to offer His blood for our redemption.

The Holy Father celebrated Mass on the Octave Day of Christmas this year in a beautiful set of vestments. These vestments are strikingly similar to the vestments he wore this year on the Feast of the Epiphany.
