Roman Nativity

When I lived in Rome I discovered that Romans know how to make many things beautiful. Here workers have placed a nativity scene inside a bulldozer during the holiday. I can see it as kitchy and I can see it as incredibly profound. What do you see?

I find it lovely!

What is a lay preacher?

Didn't know it existed in the Catholic Church...

Who gives permission for this - is it the local bishop - or parish priest?

I really like it - but them again I like that sort of things
