Mexican artists craft figures for Vatican Nativity scene

.- Mexican artisans from the state of Puebla will provide the figures for the Vatican’s Nativity scene which will decorate St. Peter’s Square this Advent season.

The Nativity scene—one of the largest in the world—will be unveiled in a special ceremony at the Vatican on Dec. 13 and will be attended by Puebla's auxiliary Bishop Eugenio Lira Rugarcia.

Bishop Lira told the Mexican daily Desde la Fe on Nov. 28 that the ceremony will include a photo exhibit at the Paul VI Hall on the treasures of the Mexican state of Puebla.

He added that auxiliary Bishop Dagoberto Sosa, Archbishop Victor Sanchez Espinosa of Puebla and Bishop Rodrigo Aguilar of Tehuacan will attend the event as well.

Within the last several years, artisans from the Mexican states of Jalisco, Mexico City, and Guanajuato have also provided the figures for the nativity scene.
