It’s an unconventional take on the nativity scene at St. Susanna’s Parish Dedham, MA. The baby Jesus is in a cage, the wise men are closed off by a wall. For the parish, the crèche is meant to be thought provoking. “We try to take a picture of the world as it is and put it together with a Christmas message,” said Pastor Fr. Stephen Josoma. Parishioner Phil Mandeville says Jesus was no stranger to politics. “Christ was political, he was hung on a cross for making political statements and bucking authority and that’s exactly why he died,” Mandeville said. The nativity scene is meant to be a symbol of hope, and at St. Susanna’s the hope is that a conversation has begun.
