The Euphoria of 2019 Christmas and the Dawn of 2020
Fr. PAT AMOBI CHUKWUMA
On the naming day, there was no controversy over the choice of his name. Hence they named him Christmas. His native name is Chukwuebuka (God is great) while the surname is Chukwuma (God knows). The full name of the newly born baby boy is therefore Christmas Chukwuebuka Chukwuma (CCC). In other words, the great God knows why the baby boy was born on Christmas day.

There are 12 issues of life that are generically indubitable in the three phases of Life's Journey from Pre-Natal, to Adult life and Gathering of Life.

The future of Africa and the botched "Nigeria Vision 2020"

He [Lucifer] was able to draw one-third of the angels to join him in his coup d'état which tragically for them ended in a fiasco thus necessitating their complete, irredeemable and scorched banishment from heavens.
