A Wean in a Manger

Thankfully in the midst of the preposterous Winterfest, Christ is still to be found in the centre of Glasgow - right in George Square as a reminder to us all in Mungo's City that The Word Incarnate is what it's all about. Sorry about the quality - it was taken on my 'phone

You will see that the figures are behind glass - I believe that's because The Little Lord Jesus was nicked a few years ago - probably still pride of place in a flat in Possil or Easterhouse - or perhaps a rather grand house in Bearsden - who knows?

In a move that will outrage the PC brigade the Crib is surmounted by the Cross - imagine that, a religious symbol in the public square! Still, Our Blessed Lord knows his place - meek in the shadow of SuperMario Galaxy.

I'm sure the Archbishop, the Most Rev Mario Conti, will appreciate the fact that Glaswegians think he is so Super ....;-)
