Photo of the day: Mary's vigil II

Before Christmas, our church had its annual Christmas program, involving kids dressed up in angel costumes, a manger with a doll in it, and someone to represent Mary, the mother of Jesus. With the younger kids standing restlessly around her between songs, tugging at their costumes, "Mary" was the very image of stillness in the midst of chaos, much as she's traditionally represented in scenes of the manger. I love the contrast in these images between the younger kids in the background and Mary in the foreground.
