In his homily, Pope Benedict spoke about the shepherds as models for how we too should respond to the birth of Christ. They heard the message because they were awake, he said, and we too should be awake. They went at once. Pope Benedict said, "From them we should learn not to be crushed by all the pressing matters in our daily lives." The shepherds set off to see what has happened. "In the figure of Jesus Christ, in the whole of his life and ministry, in his dying and rising, we can see the Word of God and hence the mystery of the living God himself. This is what God is like."
Afterward, the Vatican issued a Note the following day on an incident in which a woman believed to have mental problems attacked the Pope and Cardinal Etchegaray during the procession at the beginning of the Mass. The Pope was not injured, and he continued with the Mass. Cardinal Etchegaray will need surgery for a broken femur.

KTO has video on demand. Zenit and Benedetto XVI Forum also have English translations. Asia News has an article. Vatican Radio has an audio report, which also discusses the Christmas Vigil Mass and the attack on the Pope that evening.
In his Urbi et Orbi address, Pope Benedict began, "The liturgy of the Mass at Dawn reminded us that the night is now past, the day has begun; the light radiating from the cave of Bethlehem shines upon us." He spoke about the light of Christ, saying, "Wherever there is an 'us' which welcomes God’s love, there the light of Christ shines forth, even in the most difficult situations." He concluded by speaking of the gift of being part of "the communion of the Most Holy Trinity", open to everyone, from whose heart Jesus came into the world as God with us.
Feast of St. Stephen: Benedetto XVI Forum has an English translation of the Pope's words at today's midday Angelus. The Daily Bulletin has the original Italian text and greetings in several languages. Asia News has an article. Speaking of the first Christian martyr, he said, "Stephen's testimony, like that of all the Christian martyrs, shows contemporary men, often distracted and disoriented, in whom to place our trust in order to give sense to life." Remembering Christians who are suffering for their faith in various parts of the world, the Holy Father asked that we "commit ourselves to sustaining them with prayers, and never to fall short of our Christian calling, always placing Jesus Christ in the center of our life, whom we contemplate these days in the simplicity and humility of the manger."
