The Christmas spirit

Baby Jesus

Even today amidst the chaos of the thousands of pilgims and tourists that flock to Bethlehem the Nativity Grotto still gives you the creeps. You cannot just sit there and not get carried away in your immagination to hear the birth pangs of the mother and the birth cry of the son! And in faith you just let your tongue hum a popular Christmas Carol and realise that in Bethlehem the Christmas spirit lives on day after day, year after year. The Friars, daily celebrate the Eucharist at the Manger and at noon perform a procession around the Holy Places. Here pilgrims sing Christmas Carols daily praising the Lord for so much love He has shown towards the World. And the faint voice of the angels singing "Peace on Earth" arrives to the deep intmacy of the heart.
