THE BLESSING OF THE BAMBINELLI

First instituted by St John Paul II at the Basilica, the ‘Blessing of the Bambinelli’ has now become an Advent tradition celebrated in churches around the world. It’s a way for children to connect their Nativity scene at home to the Celebration of Christmas at their church. You are invited to bring the statue of your baby Jesus (from your Nativity set) to church next weekend (16/17 December) for this special blessing. (The words of the prayer Pope Benedict used in his blessing are beautiful.) Why not bring your kids and grandkids along too?
