Las Posadas is a Mexican tradition commemorating Mary and Joseph’s long frustrating search for a place to stay and Jesus to be born in Bethlehem. This Advent custom re-enacts the gospel story told in Luke 2:1-7 with prayer and song. We learn from the Posadas that by welcoming the poor and needy, we are welcoming Jesus in our midst.
