Friends of the Rosary:
We also pray today’s Rosary in Madrid, Spain.
In addition to the Christmas tree, during the Advent and Christmas seasons, we enjoy the nativity scenes — belenes, in Spanish.
These nativity scenes reflect the wonder of the divine littleness — God making himself small, not born in the splendor of a palace but in genuine poverty, on a stable.
For what? To be closer to each of us by highlighting the virtue of surrendering and humility.
As Pope Francis recently said, “simple and familiar, the nativity scene recalls a different Christmas from the consumerist and commercial one.”
Jesus, I Trust In You!
