Christmas, which celebrates the birth of Jesus, is just around the corner. On December 22, Pope John Paul Ⅱ is presented with a gift from the delegation of Puerto Rico, who were dressed up as the three wise men from the East who came to Bethlehem to worship baby Jesus. The pope, although suffering from Parkinsons disease, will preside Mass on Christmas Eve, and deliver his message to the world on Christmas morning.
