A Different Nativity Scene

Jesus chose to be born to poor parents instead of kings, in a humble manger instead of a palace, and surrounded by humble barn animals instead of obsequious servants.
St. Bonaventure (1221-1274) called animals “creatures without sin,” unlike we humans born with original sin or concupiscence that renders us “tinder for sin (fomes peccati).” I have no doubt, therefore, that Christ finds this nativity scene endearing. 

H/t beloved fellow May.

Adorable! And that horse reminds me so much of mine, as well as one of the dogs, it warms me down to my soul. I miss sharing Christmas with them, and this made them feel a little closer.
