The Night of Las Posadas

It is time for the celebration of Las Posadas, the festival of Mary and Joseph’s arrival in Bethlehem. Sister Angie has organized the tradition for many years. The people in the small mountain town reenact Mary and Joseph’s search for shelter the night Jesus was born. This year Angie’s neice, Lupe, and Lupe’s husband, Roberto, are going to play the parts of Mary and Joseph. But when Sister Angie becomes sick and Lupe and Roberto get stuck in a snowstorm, only a miracle can save Las Posadas.

This is an extraordinarily warm and beautiful story – one that touches the heart as it illuminates the truth of love within a festival celebration. Very highly recommended.
