Pope Francis has warned the world's 1.2 billion Roman Catholics not to be "intoxicated" by possessions in his annual Christmas homily.
He called for more sobriety in a world obsessed by "consumerism and hedonism, wealth and extravagance".
The Pope was celebrating a Christmas eve Mass in St Peter's Basilica in front of about 10,000 people.
Celebrating Mass, the Pope said Christmas was the time to "once more discover who we are".
