Pope says Bethlehem chosen for humility

 (foto: ANSA)Pope Francis in his general audience on Wednesday said that Bethlehem was chosen as Jesus's birthplace because it's "not a capital, and therefore preferred by divine providence, which likes to act through the small and the humble".

He said that, in its simplicity, the Christmas crib sends a message of hope.    

"That's why it's important to look at the Christmas crib, to stop a bit and see how much hope there is in these people," Pope Francis said.
