You probably have a Christmas tree at home but do you have a crib? In his recent Apostolic letter Admirabile Signum about which Fr Ashley writes here, Pope Francis draws our attention to the meaning and importance of the nativity scene and urges us to reclaim the awe and wonder children experience as they gaze upon the Christ Child in the manger, every Christmas.
May the Christmas crèche resonate in the hearts and minds of adults also and be a lasting inspiration that nurtures their faith.
I wish you all a very joyful and peaceful Christmas.
The Christmas Crib Offering will be donated to the Catholic Children’s Society’s Southwark Crisis Fund. There are envelope at the crib for those who are able to Gift Aid their donations.
