  • The dragon and the nativity of Jesus

    Is there a dragon in your crib scene?

    There should be.

    Each year I check out the crèche in the Archabbey Church in St. Meinrad. The spiritual home to about 100 monks, the church is beautifully decorated for Christmas. In the rear of the church, there is a very traditional nativity set with Mary cradling the infant Jesus. Joseph stares lovingly at the child and there are angels with trumpets, etc. All seems normal.

    Then there is the plush multi-headed dragon, usually lurking nearby, either under the crib scene or in a corner.
