There was some excitement at Holy Name of Mary's life-sized outdoor nativity this morning. Read on...
A note from Holy Name....
Baby Jesus went missing from the Nativity scene in front of the Church on this snowy morning.
The police were called and a police report was submitted. This had happened before, back in 2012. We never got the baby Jesus back then, and had to purchase a replacement.
But this time was different... the baby hadn't actually been stolen.
It was 'relocated'.
Someone thought the Baby might need a break from hanging with the sheep, and would be happier in the arms of his 'godfather', a wise man who had come to leave Him a gift. (see photo).
The police were very understanding.
Blessings on the Epiphany and on Sunday: the baptism of the lord.
I noticed Jesus was "gone" on my way to the city and got pretty p.o'd. So nice to hear that it wasn't stolen again.ReplyDelete
