The Nativity – Fulton Sheen Timeless Wisdom

“No room in the inn.” That infamous phrase means that Christ placed himself right in the midst of everyone who has ever felt rejected, lost or forgotten. The inn was where the popular and successful gathered, while the stable was the place for outcasts. Master teacher Fulton Sheen explains the often-overlooked depth behind the greatest story of all time: the nativity. Appropriately, this video illustrates Christ’s humble beginnings with humble wood and cardboard figures.
