This Bethlehem crib is so beautiful

LSM 1985 face
This Bethlehem crib is so beautiful and so great.It contains the whole Christ, who is both God and man. It contains the workshop of Nazareth, the Passion and the Cross, and all the glory of the Resurrection and of heaven. That is how our God first appeared, and he wants to be contemplated and adored in this state not only by the lowly but also by the great. He accepted the adoration of both shepherds and wise men and he even led them by a star into the presence of this little baby without grandeur or majesty.
