After Assisi, Foligno, Alviano, Ascoli Piceno, Perugia, Ancona, Alessandria, Rome, Bologna, Santa Maria degli Angeli and Gubbio, the journey continues towards Greccio where, according to the Franciscan sources, about fifteen days before the feast of the Nativity, the blessed Francis he called a man named Giovanni and said to him: "If you want us to celebrate the forthcoming feast of the Lord in Greccio, go ahead and prepare what I tell you: I would like to remember that Child who was born in Bethlehem, and somehow glimpse with my eyes of the body the discomforts in which it has found itself due to the lack of the things necessary for a newborn; how he was laid down in a manger and how he lay on the hay between the ox and the donkey ». As soon as he had listened to him, that good and faithful man went away promptly and prepared, in the designated place, everything according to the plan presented by the saint.
The event will be broadcast in live streaming on the sanfrancesco.org website, on the Facebook channel of the editor of the magazine Padre Enzo Fortunato and on the YouTube page of the San Francesco magazine.
