DETACHMENT FROM RICHES

***

Jesus’ birthplace now:

A decrepit trailer park

Instead of stable?

***

NOTE: Mary had the virtue of detachment from riches. She did not complain when she had to give birth to Jesus in less than optimal conditions. Jesus lay in a manger: a feeding trough for animals. If Jesus were born today, he very well could be born in a decrepit trailer park.
