    Fr,
    May I ask the source of the nativity image? I have not seen this before. It’s beautiful!

      Dan here – The artists name is William-Adolphe Bouguereau. His paintings of the Madonna and Child are my favorite. If you search him, be forewarned that he has painted a great many nude paintings and those that are tasteful within an artistic framework but may be problematic for those who struggle with porn etc. The best way to safe search is via his last name and “madonna” or “mary” or “christ” or “angels” etc.
