Assisi in Advent: illuminated frescoes and a nurse in a nativity scene

"Assisi unveiled a nativity scene Tuesday made of 50 figurines of shepherds, angels, and barn animals with a new addition this year: a life-size figure of a nurse in scrubs wearing a mask. The diocese said that it wanted symbolically to honor medical workers for their service during the coronavirus pandemic by including a nurse. “This year we wanted to create a very special nativity scene,” said Fr. Marco Moroni, the Franciscan custos of the Sacred Convent of Assisi."
