Pope Francis visits exhibition of 100 Nativity Scenes

Pilgrims and tourists got a big surprise on Monday afternoon when Pope Francis made a visit to the 100 Presepi in Vatican (100 Nativity Scenes in the Vatican) exhibition which opened on Saturday 7 December in the Vatican.

As well as looking at the over 150 Nativity Scenes which come from Italy and more than 40 other countries, the Pope said a prayer and blessed those present.

The exhibition is now in its 44th year and is currently hosted by the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for the New Evangelisation.

The 2019 edition of 100 Presepi runs until the 12 January at the Pius X Hall in Via del Ospedale near Saint Peter’s Basilica.
