The Manger in St Peter's Square

This year the manger on St. Peter's Square shows the house of Nazareth. But the magi go to Bethlehem. Will they find the newborn child?

Thank you to Gloria.TV

Te Deum laudamus: te Dominum confitemur.
Te aeternum Patrem omnis terra veneratur.
Tibi omnes Angeli; tibi caeli et universae Potestates;
Tibi Cherubim et Seraphim incessabili voce proclamant:
Sanctus, Sanctus, Sanctus, Dominus Deus Sabaoth.
Pleni sunt caeli et terra maiestatis gloriae tuae.
Te gloriosus Apostolorum chorus,
Te Prophetarum laudabilis numerus,
Te Martyrum candidatus laudat exercitus.
Te per orbem terrarum sancta confitetur Ecclesia,
Patrem immensae maiestatis:
Venerandum tuum verum et unicum Filium;
Sanctum quoque Paraclitum Spiritum.
Tu Rex gloriae, Christe.
Tu Patris sempiternus es Filius.
Tu ad liberandum suscepturus hominem, non horruisti Virginis uterum.
Tu, devicto mortis aculeo, aperuisti credentibus regna caelorum.
Tu ad dexteram Dei sedes, in gloria Patris.
Iudex crederis esse venturus.
Te ergo quaesumus, tuis famulis subveni: quos pretioso sanguine redemisti.
Aeterna fac cum sanctis tuis in gloria numerari.

V. Salvum fac populum tuum, Domine, et benedic hereditati tuae.
R. Et rege eos, et extolle illos usque in aeternum.

V. Per singulos dies benedicimus te.
R. Et laudamus nomen tuum in saeculum, et in saeculum saeculi.

V. Dignare, Domine, die isto sine peccato nos custodire.
R. Miserere nostri, Domine, miserere nostri.

V. Fiat misericordia tua, Domine, super nos, quemadmodum speravimus in te.
R. In te, Domine, speravi: non confundar in aeternum.

Feast of St. Sylvester I

Reactions 

son of a Roman soldier named Rufinus and a woman possibly named Justa. He was Pontiff during the time of Constantine the Great who granted greater freedom to Christians, and during his reign, many of Rome's great churches were founded. Though he is often depicted in art as baptizing Constantine, this is metaphorical as Constantine was actually baptized on his death bed. Pope St. Sylvester is buried in the church he built over the Priscilla Catacombs.

Muslim consecrated to God

Reactions 
A sensation from the amazingkreuz.net

Italy. An Algerian Muslim has formally entered the Focolare Movement as a Muslim, Radio Vatican reports. On Saturday, he took perpetual vows in the Focolare Movement's centre in Castel Gandolfo near Rome with 39 other men. The Muslim council took the evangelical vows of poverty, chastity and obedience with a revised formula. In Algeria, the Focolare Movement according to its own figures are 95 percent Muslim. Those involved with the Focolare Movement take a decase to prepare for perpetual vows.

Cathcon advice- have nothing to do with these new movements, you never know which God you might end up praying to.
