Almost made the Baby Jesus cry...

So I was packing up the Christmas stuff from the Chapel at St. Mark's today, including the Christmas tree next to the pulpit and the crèche. (For my liturgically impaired readers, a crèche is a manger scene.)

As I was packing up the pieces, I was wrapping them up in newspaper sheets, The set is a very a very slick, white ceramic. When I got to the manger with the baby Jesus, I accidentally dropped it. The Bambino rolled across the carpet and came to a screeching halt on the tile under one of the pews. 

Luckily I was in the chapel by myself and no one witnessed it. Needless to say I still held my breath. No harm done, the baby Jesus was intact.That was a close one. 

I almost made the baby Jesus cry.
