Christmas is the Celebration of the Birth of Christ ......


The bright cross shaped Church of the Nativity dominates manger square, the site of the birth of Jesus Christ.  "The most sacred place on earth",  as St. Jerome wrote.  On the right stands the church of St. Catherine with its red tiled roof.

The back of the postcard book reads:
"The Heavens declare the Glory of God; and the firmament showeth His handiwork." (Psalm 19:1)

Viewing the holy land from the skies is a unique way to comprehend the above verse.  Jerusalem, Nazareth, Bethlehem, Capernaum, The Sea of Galilee and other known sight are seen in their utmost magnificence.
