Let Mum Rest Sleeping Mary with Baby Jesus & Joseph 6.7" Figurine

Let Mum Rest Statue

In 2019, Pope Francis shared a viral Nativity image called “Let Mum Rest”. 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.

And in 2021, the Year of St. Joseph, it's more important than ever to celebrate St. Joseph and his role as father and husband.

    ‘Let Mum Rest’ Nativity

    I have never seen a Nativity from this perspective. Once I saw it, I knew that I had to have it. It is so beautiful. I’m sure that Mary was exhausted after having her first baby. Joseph played a very important role in raising Jesus. It makes perfect sense that Mary would rest and that Joseph would hold the baby Jesus. It’s truly a beautiful scene to make into a Nativity.

    Beautiful in crafting and in heart!

    Love it!! So thankful that we were able to get one even though I had to order 8 months ahead. That is not surprising. It is a great reflection of the reality of Christ's birth. I love how it shows Joseph loving Jesus and Mary, his wife.
