This past weekend in Graz, Austria, Gert Hoedl and his team created a stunning ice sculpture of the Nativity. Perfect timing as we are beginning the Advent season. Hoedl and his team have been recreating this ice sculpture of the Nativity since 1996, marking the beginning of every Advent. Their sculpture is one of the largest recreations of the birth of Jesus throughout the world.
Watch how Hoedl and his team created such an amazing sculpture:
As we continue to prepare for the birth of Jesus, let us reflect on what was written in the Gospel of Mark: Be watchful and alert. Remember that Advent is a time to reflect on the blessings we have received and to prepare ourselves for the greatest gift of all: Christ the Lord.
