Well the student may be right, after all scholars cannot agree where Jesus' 
burial place may have been.  So until the dowager Empress Helen affixed the 
location, it may have been migratory:)

Enjoyed this posting and the one on St. Procrastinata (will print that one 
off as a keeper).  By the way the image of "Mary in the Manger with the 
Newborn" reminds me of that scene in _Terms of Endearment_ where Aurora 
(Shirley MacLaine) climbs into the crib with her crying daughter.
