Let Mum Sleep: how the nativity is relevant today
We're loving this video from Catholic news website Aleteia showing Pope Francis explaining how the nativity is as relevant today as ever. Pope Francis said that for his birthday on December 17, he was shown a unique Nativity scene, dubbed “Let Mum Rest.” It shows Mary sleeping and Joseph holding a tired baby with his arms outstretched in a typical newborn pose. “How many of you have to share the night between husband and wife for the baby boy or girl who cries, cries, and cries?” Pope Francis reflected. This is, precisely, the message of the Nativity scene, he explained.
