It’s Christmas Eve – what do you see in the image above?
- Nativity scene: Far, Far Away on Judea’s Plains – a stable where the Christ child was born. That is what Christmas is all about – a stable with mother Mary, father Joseph and the Christ child surrounded by stable animals – the perfect fitting for the King of Kings:

- O little town of Bethlehem: that overlooks the nativity event from a hill nearby. Bethlehem at this time was bustling with people from afar who have come to Bethlehem because of the tax. That is why Mary and Joseph find themselves in a stable, because there was no room for them in the Inn:
INFO: birthplace of Christ & Church of the Nativity
- No sign of the shepherds: not in this image. They probably came, paid reverance and then left early to give Mary and Joseph a silent night, holy night.
May this season open your hearts to those who need a helping hand. Give the gift of yourself by feeding the poor, clothing the naked, visiting the sick … by ministering unto those who need a friendly smile and hand.
