THE PRESEPIO HONORING THE BIRTH OF THE MESSIAH

 

In 1223 Saint Francis of Assisi chose the humble mountain village of Greccio, overlooking the Rieti valley to commemorate the birth of Jesus.

The similarities between the landscape of Greccio and that of Palestine led him to give life to an event that still marks the history of humanity.

The Saint wanted common people, who had not come into contact with Christian teachings, to understand the mystery of Jesus’ birth.
