``In the Christmas atmosphere of these days, I invite all the faithful and all people of good will to contribute generously ... toward people who have already been through a severe trial and are now exposed to the risk of an epidemic,'' he said.

The pontiff said he was praying for both the dead and the living.

``I remain very close to them, with affection and prayer, in particular to those who are injured or homeless, while I entrust the numerous people who have lost their lives to divine mercy,'' the message said.

Wednesday's audience came amid a busy holiday schedule for the ailing pontiff, and was the last one of the year.
