Pope Benedict XVI has declared the start of the Holiday Season

Pope Benedict XVI made an appearance today near the Spanish Steps in Rome. Thousands crowded Rome's busy shopping streets today to hear the pontiff pray near the statue of Virgin Mary.

Many catholics around the world prayed for immaculate-conception of Virgin Mary with special masses held all day.

Rome's holiday season begins every Dec. 8, when the pontiff arrives in his popemobile.

Benedict was asking the Virgin Mary to help families struggling with stresses in their lives. He prayed those suffering would feel the ''warmth of God's love.''
