The Holy Family


On this feast of the Holy Family, take a minute to journey to St. Peter’s and enjoy the unveiling of the Vatican Nativity. This celebration took place on Christmas Eve, but it seems fitting to revisit it on today’s feast. The theme for this year’s creche is Francis 1223-Francis 2013, paying honor to the 790th anniversary of the very first Nativity Scene (complete with live actors and animals) created by St. Francis of Assisi.
