Las Posadas Bilingual Celebration

Las Posadas Bilingual Celebration

By (author)s: Kathryn J. Hermes FSP, Marlyn Monge FSP
SKU/EAN: 44950
ISBN: 9780819844958
Publisher: Pauline Books & Media

Las Posadas—a traditional Mexican Christmas celebration—is quickly becoming a cherished custom of both Hispanics and non-Hispanics alike throughout the United States. Reliving Mary and Joseph's search for shelter, the candle-lit procession and traditional songs of the Posadas powerfully inserts us into the mystery and marvel of God's birth among us. This bilingual English-Spanish booklet offers an explanation of the Posadas; directions for its celebration; prayers, lyrics, and music; and suggestions for bilingual celebrations.
