FROM THE MEETING ROOM OF THE MUSEUM IN LIVE WITH PAPA FRANCESCO TO GRECCIO

Large influx of visitors to the Museum of Peace - MAMT for the live connection on the big screens with Pope Francesco da Greccio for the signing of his "Apostolic Letter on the true meaning of the crib".
The Pope returned to the "second Bethlehem" after four years to sign the document on the meaning and value of this custom invented by St. Francis.
Sitting in front of the altar of the cave where St. Francis made the first nativity scene in history, the Pope plunges into a profound silence. The fresco with the Madonna nursing the Child Jesus seems to look at him with tenderness. And he also raises his eyes from time to time towards the image, in a silent dialogue. Yes, it is true, there is no need for so many words in this "new Bethlehem" set in the heart of the Lazio Apennines.
Because speaking is the same crib and because "the scene that is placed before our eyes - underlines Francesco in the subsequent short meditation - expresses the wisdom we need to grasp the essential". Silence and prayer, to transmit the fundamental message of the birth of Jesus are the ingredients of this afternoon of early Advent, in which the Pope visits the sanctuary at the gates of Greccio and signs a letter on the meaning and value of the crib, a tradition that we must continue, the Pope writes in the document, at home, as well "in workplaces, in schools, in hospitals, in prisons, in squares". But during the visit, prayer prevails, which is transmitted after the warm welcome of the arrival, even to a few thousand faithful, who have come from all over the area. A climate of recollection that actually recreates that of the Holy Night
