Greek-Orthodox priest Father Neofitis, 82, enjoys the warmth of sunbeams streaming in the Church of the Nativity December 20, 2001 at the top of the stairs leading to the Grotto where according to tradition Jesus was born, in Bethlehem. With less than a week to go before Christmas, the biblical town of Bethlehem in the West Bank is virtually empty of the usual hordes of visitors who have canceled their trips to the Holy Land because of the 15-month-old Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
