Blessing Of the Bambino

This weekend at all of the Masses on December 11th and 12th, we will join the pope and the universal church in the custom of the “Blessing of the Bambino”. Many of us have as part of our decorations at home a Christmas stable. We invite everyone to bring the image of the baby Jesus from your Christmas creche. We will have a ritual blessing of these figures and pray for the coming of Jesus into our homes, especially during this season.
