The pope speaks powerfully of the reality that is ‘God with us’ in his Midnight Mass homily.
“Formerly, people had spoken of God and formed human images of him in all sorts of different ways. God himself had spoken in many and various ways to mankind (cf. Heb 1:1 – Mass during the Day). But now something new has happened: he has appeared. He has revealed himself. He has emerged from the inaccessible light in which he dwells. He himself has come into our midst. This was the great joy of Christmas for the early Church: God has appeared. No longer is he merely an idea, no longer do we have to form a picture of him on the basis of mere words. He has “appeared”.

The Christmas Message of the Queen is always an encouragement to people of faith. With every year she speaks more directly of the reality of God present and active in the world. Note especially the last couple of minutes of this message.
