Pope Francis made a private visit to the Italian hilltown of Greccio in the Lazio region north of Rome on Monday afternoon, where he met with the local Franciscan community.The town is well known as the place where, in December 1223, St. Francis set up the first crib scene, using local animals and a carved image of the Christ Child in a manger to recreate the events of Our Lord’s birth in Bethlehem.The tradition continues in the same hillside cave which has become a popular local shrine, and visitors can also see the monastic cell in the nearby convent where St Francis slept.During the brief visit Pope Francis spent a few moments in silent prayer at the shrine, visited the adjacent Church and had lunch with the local bishop Domenico Pompili. He also greeted a group of some 70 young people who were taking part in a pilgrimage to Greccio.
Leading United Nations officials have expressed regret over Saturdays’ mass execution of 47 people by Saudi Arabia and called on the country's authorities to commute all death sentences.  Among those executed on Jan. 2 is prominent Shiite opposition figure Sheik Nimr Al-Nimr, whose death has led to the collapse of diplomatic relations between Saudi Arabia, a Sunni kingdom and Shiite-dominated Iran.   "Sheik al-Nimr and a number of the other prisoners executed had been convicted following trials that raised serious concerns over the nature of the charges and the fairness of the process," Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon's spokesperson said on Saturday in a statement, also deploring violence by demonstrators against the Saudi embassy in Tehran.  Shiite protesters took to the streets from Bahrain to Pakistan while ‎Arab allies of Saudi ‎Arabia quickly lined up behind the kingdom.‎  Saudi Arabia severed diplomatic ties with Ira...
