The Work of Christmas Begins by Dr. Howard Thurman


The Work of Christmas Begins

     When the song of the angels is stilled,
     When the star in the sky is gone,
     When the kings and princes are home,
     When the shepherds are back with their flock,
     The work of Christmas begins:

       To find the lost,
     To heal the broken,
     To feed the hungry,
     To release the prisoner,
     To rebuild the nations,
     To bring peace among brothers,
     To make music in the heart.

Dr. Howard Thurman was an influential author, philosopher, theologian, educator and civil rights leader. He was Dean of Theology and the chapels at Howard University and Boston University for more than two decades, wrote 20 books, and in 1944 helped found the first racially integrated, multicultural church in the United States.

Considerations:
Why would the cardinals be laughing during an act of papal veneration? http://www.gettyimages.ae/detail/news-photo/pope-francis-kisses-a-cross-during-a-meeting-with-cardinals-news-photo/174547606
And why the veneration of this particular, bizarre looking cross? http://www.gettyimages.ae/detail/news-photo/pope-francis-holds-a-cross-during-a-meeting-with-cardinals-news-photo/174550364
Would such a cross, which has no semblance to the traditional crucifix, warrant a sermon before a gathering of Church leadership? http://www.gettyimages.ae/detail/news-photo/pope-francis-holds-a-cross-during-a-meeting-with-cardinals-news-photo/174547601
The possible answers?

*after evaluation of the above links take into account this prophecy: http://www.thewarningsecondcoming.com/my-poor-holy-vicar-pope-benedict-xvi-will-be-ousted-from-the-holy-see-in-rome/
The prediction therein was given exactly one year prior to Pope Benedict’s 2/11/13 resignation press conference.

Consider this comparison: (observe carefully the words used in both the Caritas International video and the prophecy link below)

An unusual event to compare:
Here is a sample review of the 2014 Grammy Awards (event featured religious ritual): http://www.spiritdaily.com/grammys.htm
