Bringing Gifts to the Manger

By Ann Zlotnik

We have arrived at the fourth week of Advent, and Christmas Day is nearly here. The Marian Library’s virtual Advent wreath is glowing brightly now that all four candles have been lit.

The final gift from the Marian Library is a video tour of Nativity sets currently on display in the Juggling for Mary exhibit. As the video travels through the selection of Nativities, look for the unique gifts and talents that are being offered to the Holy Family. Gifts are a display of love, and they come in many forms. Share your special gifts this Christmastime.

May peace be with you and Merry Christmas from all of us at the Marian Library!
