Item Description...
Overview
Why are we drawn to the crib? What is it that keeps us coming back to the stories of Jesus' birth? Regardless of age, station in life, and the firm resolution not to return to the stable, we find ourselves once again at the crib. Why? For the same reason we find ourselves drawn to the foot of the cross on Good Friday. Both crib and cross, each in its own way, invites us to hope. But it is the crib that offers us that hope in the here and now. In highlighting four of the principal protagonists in the Christmas story, the story of the Incarnation of the Son of God - Isaiah who foretold his coming; John the Baptizer who prepared the way for him when at last he came; St. Joseph who accepted the responsibility for his safety, well-being and upbringing; and Mary his mother, who remained steadfast in faith to the very end - Father Maestri leads us through Advent on a journey that is at once short and intense. In this work, each day of Advent is directed by one of these guides to the crib of Christ. As we meditate on what they have to show us, we begin to recognize how near a hand He is to us right now, how in the midst of our everyday lives, the Word continues to be born again so that we might be born anew.
