Have you seen Exodus: Gods and Kings?


Have you seen the epic movie, Exodus: Gods and Kings, showing in the theatres now? It is currently showing at Genesis Deluxe Cinemas and Silverbird Cinemas.

This film is Hollywood's Ridley Scott interpretation of the exodus of the Hebrews from Egypt as led by Moses and related in the Book of Exodus. The film has a number of renowned stars including Christian Bale, Joel Edgerton, John Turturro, Aaron Paul, Ben Mendelsohn, Sigourney Weaver, and Ben Kingsley.

Egyptian Princes Moses (Christian Bale) and Ramses (Joel Edgerton) are raised together as brothers. When Ramses becomes pharaoh, Moses is his most-trusted adviser. However Moses soon discovers his Hebrew parentage, and Ramses banishes him to the desert -- often a death sentence. But God has a missio… Moren for Moses: Free the Israelites from slavery. Moses returns from exile and demands that Ramses let his people go, but the arrogant ruler is unmoved, leading to a battle of divine wills.

Indonesia AirAsia said there were 155 passengers and seven crew on board. It said 156 were Indonesian, with three from South Korea and one each from Singapore, Malaysia and France.

The incident comes at the end of a disastrous year for the region's airlines. Malaysia's national flag carrier, Malaysia Airlines, lost two aircraft this year; Flight MH370 on March 8 on a trip from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing with 239 passengers and crew on board and Flight MH17 on July 17, shot down over Ukraine, killing all 298 people on board.

Pope Francis' Christmas Day Message


Thousands of Catholics flocked to St Peter's Square to hear the Argentine pope deliver his "Urbi et Orbi" (to the city and the world) blessing and message. This marks the second Christmas since his election last year.
Here is the official Vatican English-language translation of Pope Francis' Christmas Day message, which he delivered in Italian:
Dear Brothers and Sisters, Happy Christmas!

Jesus, the Son of God, the Savior of the world, is born for us, born in Bethlehem of a Virgin, fulfilling the ancient prophecies. The Virgin's name is Mary, the wife of Joseph.

Humble people, full of hope in the goodness of God, are those who welcome Jesus and recognize him. And so the Holy Spirit enlightened the shepherds of Bethlehem, who hastened to the grotto and adored the Child. Then the Spirit led the elderly and humble couple Simeon and Anna into the temple of Jerusalem, and they recognized in Jesus the Messiah. "My eyes have seen your salvation", Simeon exclaimed, "the salvation prepared by God in the sight of all peoples" (Lk 2:30).

2014 Christmas Message from President Goodluck Jonathan

President Goodluck Jonathan
CHRISTMAS MESSAGE TO THE NATION FROM GOODLUCK EBELE JONATHAN, GCFR, PRESIDENT, FEDERAL REPUBLIC OF NIGERIA, DECEMBER 25, 2014

Dear Compatriots,

I greet and felicitate with you all once again as we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ. I join all of our Christian compatriots in giving thanks to God Almighty for the divine gift of Jesus Christ the Messiah whose earthly incarnation we commemorate today.

As we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ who the Prophet Isaiah heralded as the Prince of Peace and Wonderful Counselor, I believe it is very appropriate that we all, Christians and non-Christians alike, reflect more deeply on the virtues and ideals which the Messiah espoused during his earthly mission.

To my mind, there can be no doubt that the greater internalization of the virtues of love for our fellowmen, tolerance, Godliness, honesty, fairness to others, selflessness, and peaceful co-existence with others, by all adult Nigerians, and the inculcation of the same in our youth, will definitely help our dear nation to overcome most of its present challenges.
