Live All That The Nativity Represents In Your Daily Life | Pope Benedict XVI Quote

by Advent and Christmas, Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI

“It gives me great joy to know that the custom of creating a crib scene has been preserved in your families. Yet it is not enough to repeat a traditional gesture, however important it may be. It is necessary to seek to live in the reality of daily life that the crib represents, namely, the love of Christ, his humility, his poverty. This is what St Francis did at Greccio: he recreated a live presentation of the nativity scene in order to contemplate and worship it, but above all to be better able to put into practice the message of the Son of God who for love of us emptied himself completely and made himself a tiny child.”

Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI
