‘The nativity scene is akin to a living Gospel rising up from the pages of sacred Scripture. As we contemplate the Christmas story, we are invited to set out on a spiritual journey, drawn by the humility of the God who became man in order to encounter every man and woman.’ (Pope Francis, Admirabile Signum, 1).

 

In this typically heart-warming apostolic letter, Pope Francis explores the meaning of the nativity scene, its origins, and the untold importance it has for society today. With references to the first nativity scene, attributed to St Francis of Assisi in Greccio, Italy, Pope Francis explores the history of the crib and its profound and everlasting symbolism. He also explores its implication for Christians today, at a time when, despite great wealth and prosperity, so many in society are told that there is ‘no room at the inn’.
