The First Nativity Scene, Inspired by St. Francis of Assisi RSS
The story of the first manger reminds us that we should follow the promptings of the Holy Spirit. This deep love and devotion for the most memorable birth in history led this saint to create a tradition shared by many Christian denominations today. By appreciating its beauty, we are reminded that the promised Messiah and King of the World was born in a humble manger in Bethlehem. He did not want to be boastful about His power but tried to make it known that He was the servant of all. We rejoice in the birth of Jesus Christ, our Redeemer. He is the Joy of the World!
