Vatican City, Dec 15, 2017 / 10:41 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Music and art are especially suited to helping us more deeply comprehend the true meaning of the mystery of Christmas, said Pope Francis in remarks on Friday. “Art is an impressive means of opening the doors of the mind and heart to the true meaning of Christmas. The creativity and genius of artists, with their work, music and singing are able to reach the innermost depths of the conscience,” the Pope said Dec. 15. “Art enters precisely into the depths of the conscience.” “Christmas,” he continued, “is a feast that is heart-felt, participatory and capable of warming the coldest of hearts, of removing barriers of indifference towards our neighbors and encouraging openness towards others and a free gift (of self).” “This is why today we need to spread the message of peace and fraternity proper to Christmas; we need to represent this event by expressing the authentic sentiments that animate it.” Pope Francis spoke to those involved in the organization and performance of the 25th edition of the Vatican’s annual charity concert: “Christmas at the Vatican,” which will take place Dec. 16. This year the concert supports two children’s projects: The Pontifical Foundation “Scholas Occurrentes” and a program to free children enslaved in the coltan mines of the Democratic Republic of the Congo. It includes performances by Italian and international musicians and vocalists, including a children’s choir from Rome. Scottish singer Annie Lennox and American singer-songwriter Patti Smith will also perform, as well as Suor Cristina, the young Ursuline Sister of the Holy Family who captivated millions when she won the 2014 edition of The Voice Italy. Upon entering the Clementine Hall, the Pope was greeted by the sounds of a Christmas carol sung by various singers, including the children of the Italian “Small Choir of Piazza Vittorio” and members of the Art Voice Academy and Hallelujah Gospel Singers. Pope Francis thanked all those who will take part, including performers and audience members, for showing concern for those in need of help and solidarity. He said that he hopes the Christmas concert can be an opportunity to sow tenderness in the world, a word that is, he said, “much forgotten today.” “Sow the tenderness, the peace and the welcome which spring from the cave of Bethlehem,” he said.

Terri Ottaway, GIA’s museum curator was recently interviewed by The New York Times on emerald formation and how the Patricia Emerald came to be discovered in Chivor, Colombia in the 1920’s. At 632 carats, the Patricia remains one of the largest uncut emeralds in the world and will be a star feature at the American Museum of Natural History in New York in 2019. http://nyti.ms/2C6wssI

"We need a fundamental change of mindset with regards to the way we speak and behave about sex and sexuality. Boys and men have a particularly critical role in this regard, changing the chauvinist and demeaning ways sexuality and women were traditionally dealt with in both our actions and speaking." ~ #NelsonMandela during a Youth Forum on HIV/AIDS, University of the Witwatersrand, Johannesburg, South Africa, 22 September 2003 #LivingTheLegacy #MadibaRemembered #WhyGender
