This is a turn for Frank Mc Court, this is a sweet, compassionate story from him. A beautiful Gift book.When Frank's mother Angela was 6 years old and growing up in Limerick, Ireland.In her church at Christmas she noticed Baby Jesus in the nativity scene and assumed because he had no blanket he was cold.So Angela snuck the poor nativity baby Jesus into her large family's home and into bed to keep him warm. Mom finds out and Angela and her brother and mom return him to the church.But out walks the priest and a policeman. The policeman asks Angela why did you take Baby Jesus home and she siad because he was cold.The policeman said I cannot arrest the tiny girl. So Mom and Angela leave the baby in the nativity scene. I do not think poor Angela meant anything but good.She just loved baby Jesus and wanted to keep him warm. Do we love Baby Jesus enough to think about him every day?
