Pope Francis Blesses 100 Nativity Scenes

Pope Francis recently blessed the “100 Nativities in the Vatican” display, with the pope spending about 40 minutes meeting the staff and artists of the exhibition and viewing the nearly 130 nativities from 30 different countries. The previous week, Pope Francis visited the Italian town of Greccio, where St. Francis of Assisi created the first nativity scene with live animals in a cave in 1223.
