Bambinelli Sunday, 17 December at 12 noon Mass: blessing of Infant Jesus from Family Crib

Bambinelli Sunday is a beautiful custom instituted by St John Paul II during his Papacy. On the Third Sunday of Advent (Gaudete or Rejoice Sunday), children and their families travel to St. Peter’s Square and bring with them figures of baby Jesus – the Bambinelli – from their family Crib. After the Angelus the Pope blesses both the children and the figurines.
 
This year, we will celebrate Bambinelli Sunday for the first time in Our Lady Queen of Peace. The blessing will take place at the end of the 12 noon Mass and will consist of a short prayer followed by a blessing with holy water of the Bambinelli.
