pope pope francis recently made a revelation. he told new parents he was baptized on this day, christmas, 78 years ago. >> the pope also talked about gifts this season. he asked the world's catholics to become missionaries of joy. he urged people not to worry about that holiday rush but, quote, think of all the good things that life has given you. >> joseph kurtz is the archbishop of louisville and the archbishops. thank you. >> merry christmas. >> to you as well. >> thank you, thank you. >> why is joy crucial to our lives? >> well, don't you think people recognize the joyful person and want to hang around them? i mean that's not an accident. >> is that what this pope's success about is about? >> think it is. i think it is. i hope there are many people in
7:08 am
people's lives that say this person is a joy. our holy father is someone who comes through who's living a simple life. there's not a sense he's acting out cement. he's acting out joy. i think he lives in the present moment. you can just see it. there's a spontaneity with him. that attracts everybody. gospel of joy. >> he's so authentic. that's the thing that gravitates, i think, to people. >> we met october 4th, the feast of saint francis, great day, his patron saint. we met for about 45 minutes. he emanated joy. he had time for us. what did we want to talk about, and i wanted to talk about his visit. >> his visit to america. >> it will be his first. i hope you're all getting anxious. i hope you're as excited as i am. >> he'll come in the fall of 2015 and start in philadelphia.
7:09 am
>> i don't know that he'll start in philadelphia but the main presence will be felt in philadelphia, norah, you're right. >> what can we expect when he comes here? >> well of course he's coming primarily for the world meeting of families. this will be a great time for people to come together in philadelphia, the city of brotherly love, in order to renew our commitment to family. you and i know that we're in the midst of the synod, so it will be days before the general synod begins. so we're hoping he'll give a shot in the arm to all of us with regard to family. >> remind us of what the synod is? >> very few times that the church has doubleheader. like in baseball. but it's october. and so the last synod this past october was on the challenges of the family.
7:10 am
now the synod coming up is talking about the mission and vocation of family to the world and to the church. >> this comes from a new biography of him. they call him a bit of a radical. >> yes. >> we know of his identification with the poor and his emphasis on being pastoral. this is what he says. dynamic, disconcerting leadership. which while delighting catholics and attracting people beyond the boundaries of faith has dismayed and disconcerted a number of christians in church. >> he's talking about getting back to the gospel. here it is christmas day. getting rid of all the wrapping paper, so to speak, and getting to the core message which is as our holy father said, it's the message of the love of jesus and the mercy that he shows to each one of us and that we need to show to others. i think that's the radical nature of what he's about. and, of course, he comes with a style. i've been reading that book to
7:11 am
try to understand more. >> what have you understood? >> i think the fact that he sees the person first. he has often said -- he says it in the joy of the gospel. he said he favors realities over ideas. he's a smart man. it's not that he doesn't want to talk about ideas. but i think he doesn't want to get so far away and argue about ideas that you miss the person in front of him. >> it's so interesting that you say that because he sees the person first. i think that's what people are struck by. whether you're gay, whether you're divorced, people who have been ostracized from the catholic church, the pope seems to be extending his arms to them. >> he does, norah. one of the things he uses -- i don't know if he would use the word "art," but the art of accompaniment. what does it mean to be accompanied, especially when you're hurting. when i was ordained in 1972, i
7:12 am
didn't know it was accompanied. they entered into the lives of people and they accompanied them on a path to christ. >> is it possible because there's so much emphasis on him doing, that because it reminds us that jesus was a radical that the church had forgotten that a bit? >> why do i need a retreat every year? and i need it. why? because i need to return to the roots. i imagine that's true of all of you in journalism, that you need to -- >> we need a lot of things. >> but what brought you to the true message. i think a pope in a sense -- i think pope francis as
7:13 am
pontificate has been a big treat for me. it's called me to go back and to what's most basic and important in my own life and i think that's what's attracting people. >> you know, we focus on what's so different from one another, we focus on political parties, people focus on different genders, different races, different religions. certainly we have conflict all over the world, instead of focusing on how people are alike. >> i think that's right. the pope says, listen, i'm a son of the church. meaning, i'm not wanting to change doctrine. i know there's something beautiful in the doctrine and, in fact, in the truth of christ. but in doing that, wasn't it jesus who saw the person first and front. even someone who was in a very sinful situation. that jesus ended up saying, now go and sin no more. he never said that as his first words. he was always reaching out. i think that's what pope francis
7:14 am
is doing. in basically saying that the role of the holy father is to serve and so the role of those who assist him is to serve. that's good news. in fact, i hope when i go back to louisville kentucky that i'm able to say, that's what i want to do i want to serve people. which is getting, again, to use that word radical, getting back to the very roots of what the church is about. our mission is to present jesus christ to the world at every age. >> never a better time to celebrate than christmas. >> oh, especially when you look at the fact that christmas slows us down. it makes all of us, i think, think about others. i celebrate actually on christmas day the mass of the air. i often think, it's a mass that goes on in louisville in which people are maybe living alone but they're somehow joined that day to the church. so i think in some ways it does bring us to the deep ministries of life and maybe makes is a
7:15 am
little more like children that we're supposed to be. >> may we never lose that, that joy. are you handling the interview when he comes here to the united states? >> am i handling it. i can't handle my own interview. >> maybe you could put his name in for us. >> you know what wouldn't that be a great thing? >> that would be a great thing. >> he does have a fondness about talking to people in the media. and i like that that's a good thing. >> you can tell him you know people. >> very nice to have you here. >> thanks, gayle. merry christmas. nearly 80% of americans identify themselves as christians but only a third go to church on a regular basis. falling attendance often blamed on discord over issues like same-sex marriage. jericka duncan shows us an australian megachurch bucking that trend in this country. >> what's the point of all this? religion is the elaborate handshake. pray a lot. make a lot of noise. show how good you are. do all the stuff. >> reporter: inside the grand ballroom carl lynch is electrifying the audience.
7:16 am
this is not the latest blockbuster on broadway. >> take a shot in letting the ruler rule. ♪ jesus ♪ >> reporter: this is new york city's hillsong church and lynch, the 35-year-old husband and father of three, is not your average pastor. you anywhere anywhere from six to seven sermons on sunday. is it tiring? >> yeah, it's tiring but you get refreshed. because you're doing what you were born to do. >> you want to gauge how you're doing spiritually? >> reporter: lynch graduated from hillsong bible college. by 2010, he began preaching in new york city's nightclubs. it was the start of hillsong in the u.s. >> now a largely young crowd of 7,000 people line up to attend one of seven services offered each sunday. what do you think separates you from other mega churches? >> people often talk about the trendy aspects of our church. it's a small portion. there's a lot of people in our church right this second who
7:17 am
don't care about fashion, they don't care about what looks cool. we just say, you come as you are and there's going to be a place for you here. >> we have a passion to do something significant. >> reporter: senior pastor brian houston founded hillsong 30 years ago. >> when we started, we had no idea that one night we would have campuses and churches all over the globe like we do today. ♪ >> reporter: young people are drawn to hillsong's music. the church has its own record label that sold 16 million albums world wide and makes $100 million a year. ♪ i believe in the resurrection ♪ >> reporter: every week in 12 countries, 75,000 faithful follow hillsong services and many follow online on social media, including justin bieber. and nba star kevin durant was baptized by pastor lynch. >> the music, it's eye opening. people go, wow didn't know

churches could do stuff like that. which is sad but that's the truth. that's why it opens so many doors, because it's so good. ♪ cry if not for me ♪ >> reporter: while the concert-like atmosphere differs from a traditional christian church, hillsong says its religious principles are the same. >> we're bible believing christians. we don't want to turn our backs on all. we want to connect with some. >>. >> reporter: do you walk away from any issues? >> no. >> reporter: what are your thoughts about premarital sex? >> that's a higher question you know, what does god say about purity, what does god say about valuing other people. >> reporter: what do you teach? >> sex is for marriage. >> reporter: abortion. >> life is sacred. whatever you choose to do that is still home for you. you have to make your own decision. we're going to walk with you either way. this what we believe. life is sacred. but we still love you.
7:19 am
>> reporter: women can serve any role in the church. openly gay couples are welcome. but he does not support same-sex marriage. why don't you agree with same-sex marriage? >> i think it's clear. we are the painted tongue of the word of god, which is the scriptures and that's the stand we take. >> we're not against anything. we are for what the bible says. i have the right to have my belief as you have your belief. >> reporter: welcome home signs remind worshipers they're part of a family and by making faith fresh, he believes this crowd will continue to embrace his christian message. >> sometimes in the church isn't going to change the methods, then it will become irrelevant. >> i know what we do, love god, love life love people and let the chips fall where they may. >> let the chips fall where they may. >> my attitude is if it brings you to somewhere, where you're
7:20 am
leading a better life, it's good for you. >> it's so true. the first time is when bubba watson was in the green room. he came in. i thought, who's that guy, all tatted up? >> tatted is tattooed? >> yeah, tattoos. britney on our set said, that's my pastor. i was blown away. the music is great. the message great. however you get it is how you get it. it's a great place. >> ahead, a remarkable new technology. that could transform the military. a look at the boost for american troops on the battlefield. >> she danced her way to the music stage. sharing her amazing journey. it's not easy being green. kermit the frog shares a value of chasing dreams and a poignant note to his younger self. you're watching "cbs this morning." note to his younger self.
