Pope gifts relic of Jesus' manger to Bethlehem

The people of Bethlehem have received what is believed to be a little piece of Jesus' history in a kick-off to the Christmas holiday season.

This small piece of wood -just a few inches long - is said to be part of the manger where Jesus laid his head after his humble birth in the town revered as his birthplace.

The relic, a gift from the Vatican, arrived in Bethlehem on Saturday after a Friday unveiling at the Notre Dame of Jerusalem Center.

(SOUNDBITE) (Arabic) CHRIS GAICAMAN, 53-YEAR- OLD, HOUSE WIFE FROM BETHLEHEM, SAYING: "Sure, our feeling is full of joy.

We are proud that part of the manger is back to Bethlehem because we feel that the soul of God is with us more than before.

This is to secure our existence as Christians in Bethlehem.

We hope that the whole manger will return to Bethlehem." The relic, which was greeted by marching bands, was placed in Saint Catherine's Church at the Church of the Nativity compound in Manger Square.

Eager eyes are waiting to getting a glimpse during what is a busy time of year for Bethlehem, in the Israeli-occupied West Bank.

Tourists and pilgrims typically flock to the Biblical city to celebrate the birth of Jesus.
