Pope Francis has said that Christmas had been taken hostage by materialism that blinds many to the needs of the hungry, the migrants and the war weary.

Francis, leading the world's Roman Catholics said in his Christmas message at St. Peter's Basilica said if we want to celebrate Christmas authentically we must keep in mind the orders of Al Mighty God.

At the joyous service, attended by people, cardinals and bishops, Pope Francis said the many in the wealthy world had to be reminded that the message of Christmas was humility, simplicity and mystery.
