First up are some photos of the magnificent Nativity outside the Church of St. Anthony of Padua. I hope they leave it up til the Feast of the Presentation.
|Notice St. Francis of Assisi in the background|
|You can an idea how expansive the scene is|
|The lowly shepherds come to pay homage to the Newborn King|
|The Magi en route, bearing gifts|
|Another beautiful Creche by more Franciscan Fathers.|
|Seems like the friars here really get into the Christmas spirit|
Here is a gratuitous photo of my girls. One is a pious little girl and the other is a heathen but she has a good
heart which we will pray will ignite with love for God through the practice of the faith handed to her.
