Traditional Nativity scene, handmade by one of our sisters
In Bad Reichenhall, in Bavaria (Germany, Middleuropean Province) the CJ sisters enjoy a very special nativity scene, designed by Sr Moderata Kögl CJ.
This special installation is not only about the Holy Night, but about the great arc of salvation history; first the story of the patriarchs: Abraham – Isaac – Jacob; then the prophets; and finally stories from the New Testament, around John the Baptist and the events of the Holy Night.
Sr Gonzaga Wennmacher CJ introduces it to us. The text is in German, but the many images are universal. And all those who would want to read more in their own language, we recommend to use www.deepl.com for the translation.
