The Pope's Christmas card
this year is a picture of the Sagrada Familia by Antoni Gaudí. This
is the Nativity sculpture by Jaume Busquets and is situated on the
only facade created by Gaudí that he saw virtually completed.
Benedict XVI visited Barcelona on November 7 and consecrated the basilica of the Sagrada Familia. He said that the spectacular basilica is “a praise to God in stone.”
He liked it so much that he's sending it as a greeting card to the world. It includes the papal coat of arms, his signature and the Latin words “Verbum caro factum est,” “the Son of God became man.”
