Pope Francis checks time after visiting the nativity scene set in St. Peter's square following a New Year's Eve vespers service he celebrated in St. Peter's Basilica at the Vatican, Tuesday, Dec. 31, 2013. Pope Francis has used his traditional year-end prayer service of thanksgiving to urge people to ask themselves: Did they spend 2013 to further their own interests or to help others? That's what we all should "courageously" consider as New Year's celebrations get under way, the pontiff said, as he led the service in St. Peter's Basilica on Tuesday evening.
