THE XVII. MEDITATION Of The Birth Of Our Savior Christ In A Stable In Bethlehem THE III. POINT. The third, and principal point is, to consider the marvelous greatness of that divine child, laid in the manger. Pondering the dignity of his person; the words that he spake in his heart; the works that he did; and the things that he suffered: and for whom; and how: and the heroic virtues that he there did exercise. All this I am to ponder, as the most sacred Virgin did ponder it, in this form. 1. First, I will behold the person of that child, making a comparison between what he is, as he is almighty God, and between what he is there, as he is man; with an affection of admiration, and love the greatest that I am able: pondering how this child is that God of majesty, whose seat id heaven, whose throw are the Cherubins, and whose servants the Hierarchies of Angels are, being in the maddest of them, as an Emperor, whom all do adore, and to whom all acknowledge subjection. And
THE XVII. MEDITATION Of The Birth Of Our Savior Christ In A Stable In Bethlehem THE II POINT. 1. Secondly, I am to consider what the blessed Virgin did, when by those jubilees she knew that the hour of her delivery was come, pondering her affections, her actions, and her words. For recollecting herself in a corner of the stable, and settled in a very high contemplation, she brought forth her only begotten Son, and forth she took him in her arms. O what content, and joy received she at that first view, not staying upon the outward beauty of the body, but passing to the beauty of the soul, and of the Deity! On the one side she embraced him and kissed him lovingly as her Son: and on the other side she shrunk back, and humbly retired, considering that he was almighty God: for with these two arms God desert to be embraced; with charity, and humility; with love, and reverence: and the like am I to do spiritually, taking him as it were in my arms, loving him, and reverencing him
TURINO VANNI Nativity 1390s And it came to pass, that when they were there, her days were accomplished, that she should be delivered. And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him up in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. And there were in the same country shepherds watching, and keeping the night watches over their flock. And behold an angel of the Lord stood by them, and the brightness of God shone round about them; and they feared with a great fear. And the angel said to them: Fear not; for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, that shall be to all the people:For, this day, is born to you a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord, in the city of David. And this shall be a sign unto you. You shall find the infant wrapped in swaddling clothes, and laid in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly army, praising God, and saying: Glory to God in the highest; and on ear
The suspects: Who could have carried out the drone attack? Environmental activist group: Groups such as Extinction Rebellion and Plane Stupid have been carrying out increasingly high-profile stunts in recent months, but no one has claimed responsibility over yesterday's action. Speaking to MailOnline, an Extinction Rebellion spokesman said the group had nothing to do with the drone. She added that the police had not been in contact with them about the incident at Gatwick. 'Lone wolf': The incident may be the work of an anarchistic loner who wanted to make an impact and cause carnage. Foreign power: Some experts say the sophistication of the equipment used suggests a hostile foreign government may be involved. Anti-noise campaigners: It is possible a local resident with a grudge against aircraft noise carried out the drone flights in retaliation at the airport. Immigration campaigners : In the wake of convictions of the 'Stansted 15'

Iraq War veteran and health care executive, 57, mysteriously dies on flight from New York to Shanghai - and his widow and four children still don't know what happened two weeks later The family of an Iraq war veteran from Long Island are demanding answers, nearly two weeks after the man boarded a flight bound for China and mysteriously passed away before the plane landed in Shanghai. Retired National Guard Lt Col Norman Easy, 57, who for the last eight years had served as director of procurement at Siemens Health Diagnostics, traveled to Shanghai on December 7 to close what his family described as a 'ground-breaking' deal that had been more than a year in the making. The married father-of-four was set to arrive in Shanghai on the evening of December 8, but his wife, Nitxia, did not get a call from him telling her that he landed safely, which was unlike him and set off alarm bells.

Passenger takes trip to jail after meltdown at Memphis airport MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Tamiko Warner didn't just make a scene before her flight at the Memphis airport — she made a mess, turning over furniture and setting off a fire extinguisher that filled the airport gate with fog. The man who filmed the rampage and posted it to Facebook said it was all over a $20 baggage fee. "I don't care about going to jail. Whatever. This is worth it," Warner said in the video. She carried on for nearly five minutes uninterrupted in the video, causing thousands of dollars of damage in the airport.Other passengers watching the video for the first time couldn't believe their eyes. Maria Rivera watched, stunned as Warner clapped proudly in the video, seemingly unashamed. "That's terrible," Rivera said. "I think people need to check themselves before acting like this in public." Warner is charged with disorderly conduct and vandalism. Her bond is set

Just Exactly Where Is the Final Frontier? The line between atmosphere and outer space is surprisingly debatable. Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo may or may not have crossed it. There is no sign saying “Welcome to Outer Space” when a ship such as Virgin Galactic’s SpaceShipTwo arrives at its edge, as it reportedly did on Thursday. The atmosphere doesn’t abruptly end, but thins out gradually. The craft’s maximum altitude of 51.4 miles was lower than the 100 kilometer (62-mile) limit set by the Ansari X prize back in 2004. (This was won by SpaceShipOne, then of Mojave Aerospace Ventures, which maxed out at 69.7 miles.) Is it OK to lower the bar on the edge of space? Who gets to decide where space begins? Virgin Galactic and its competitors in the space tourism trade would like to make it low enough to say their customers are getting there. (Though moving the line won’t affect Elon Musk if he pulls off his promised trek around the moon.) Source ST THOMAS ON THE HABITAT OF
