July 31 – BETHLEHEM – The day will be spent at the Basilica of the Nativity, the site of our Lord’s birthplace, and the Milk Grotto, the home of the Holy Family before their exile to Egypt. The group celebrates a Christmas Liturgy in the Basilica of the Nativity. This is the only place in the world where the Christmas Mass may be celebrated outside of the Christmas Season, because it is here where it began!
Prayer: The Word was made flesh and dwelt among us! He shared our humanity that we might share His divinity. Thank you for the overflowing love which burst forth and is found in the arms of Mary. May you Lord be born again in our hearts!
