In 2019, Pope Francis shared a viral Nativity image called “Let Mum Rest” (shown here). Pope Francis said that for his birthday on December 17, he was shown a unique Nativity scene, dubbed “Let Mum Rest.” In the depiction, Mary is sleeping and Joseph is holding a tired Baby with his arms outstretched in a typical newborn pose. The pope said the image shows “the tenderness of a family, of a marriage.” This is the message of the nativity scene, the pope explained, "And we can also invite the Holy Family to our home, where there are joys and concerns, where every day we wake up, eat, and sleep close to our loved ones. The manger is a domestic Gospel."

Pope Francis has been emphasizing the importance of holding on to the tradition of displaying Nativity scenes in your home.
