A MOST HUMBLE BIRTH

A MOST HUMBLE BIRTH. The simple nativity scene near the west entrance of the St. Paul church in Vigan City commemorates the humble birth of Jesus Christ in a cave in Bethlehem with only the shepherds and wise men bearing witness, quietly reminding us to slow down and turn away from the consumerism and excess that now pervades the celebration of the season.
