Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
As Christmas approaches, Christians are celebrating the return of a little wooden relic that was believed to be part of Jesus manger, 1400 years after it was gifted to the pope in Rome.
Fox News reports that the small-sized cradle was shown to worshipers on Friday, November 29, at the Notre Dame church in Jerusalem during a-day celebration and prayer.
By Saturday, November 30, the media said it would be sent to its permanent place at the Franciscan Church of St Catherine, very close to the Church of the Nativity in Bethlehem, where Jesus was born.
It should be noted that the arrival of the important piece will happen on the same day of Advent, a four-week period that will usher in Christmas.
The Vatican said Pope Francis is returning the piece to the custodian of religious sites in Bethlehem as a gift.

While on the subject of Jesus, an unnamed pastor has been captured in a recent video caning his members who were seen lying on the floor. It is reported that the church members received the lashes because they were absent during a Sunday service.
It is not known if the pastor had a register he marked which revealed those who were absent. The language he speaks is not too familiar which may mean this did not happen in Ghana.
