Christmas, images, and nacimientos

To prepare for the coming feast of Christmas, the birth of Christ, I want to share a few images that might help our meditations.

A small Ecuadoran carved wooden Nativity, painted by the wife of a friend from Colombia

A live Christmas scene at San Marcos Church in Gracias, Lempira, Honduras, December 25, 2010.

A part of the nacimiento - Christmas creche - in Gracias, Lempira, Honduras, 2010

A view of the nacimiento in Gracias which was quite large.


The statue of San José - Saint Joseph - from the nacimiento (Nativity) in Gracias, Lempira.  
San José seems so Honduran.

San Nicolás at the Christmas celebration for poor kids in Santa Rosa, December 2010
