First we read in Luke
1:26-27, 30-35, 2:8-14,18
And in the sixth month
the angel Gabriel was sent
from God unto a city of
Galilee, named Nazareth.
To a virgin espoused to a
man whose man was
Joseph, of the house of
David; and the virgin's
name was Mary. And the
angel said unto her, Fear
not, Mary: for thou hast
found favour with God.
And, behold, thou shalt
conceive in thy womb,
and bring forth a son, and
shalt call his name Jesus.
He shall be great, and
shall be called the Son of
the Highest: and the Lord
God shall give unto him
the throne of his father
David: And he shall reign
over the house of Jacob
for ever; and of his
kingdom there shall be no
end. Then said Mary
unto the angel, How shall
this be, seeing I know not
a man? And the angel
answered and said unto
her, The Holy Ghost shall


,ev. rrea massaoni
come upon thee, and the
power of the Highest shall
overshadow thee:
therefore also that holy
thing which shall be born
of thee shall be called the
Son of God. And there
were in the same country
shepherds abiding in the
field, keeping watch over
their flock by night.
And, lo, the angel of the
Lord came upon them,
and the glory of the Lord
shone round about them;
and they were sore afraid.
And the angel said unto
them, Fear not: for,
behold, I bring you good
tidings of great joy, which
shall. be to all people.
For unto you is born this
day in the city of David a

Prayer
By Dr. Qazi Muhammad


What constitutes a
general council? This is a
meeting convened by the
pope, although this has not
always been the case in
early church history, All
bishops are called to
participate, but others are
also invited. There is no
regular schedule for
convoking a council; they
are called as needed so that
the council fathers can
address the demanding
religious and social issues
of their day. From the
very outset of the church's
life, Christian leaders have
used such major meetings
to compare notes and solve
problems.
For example, when
Pope Innocent III
announced Lateran IV,
which met in 1215, he
declared that some
important questions
required attention, and

individually or
collectively.
Dua is offered,
anytime, at any place, by
raising hands about face
and supplication to Allah,
Almighty. It is
prohibited to look
towards sky or Heaven
while offering Dua.
(Bukhari.) Dua can be
said alone or with a.

Salat is prayer

Samaha, S.M.
"since these objects affect
the condition of the whole
body of the faithful, we
should summon a general

ancient custom of the holy
fathers to be held at a
convenient time and to be
concerned only with the
spiritual good of souls."
Then he suggested a

his career in Chicago and
later founded St. Jude.
Thomas' husband Phil

they would vote for Kerry,

percent of respondents said
they are better off now than
they were four years ago.
Forty-five percent said they
experienced some form of
anti-Muslim discrimination
or bias in the past year and


87 percent felt less secured
since the invasion of Iraq.
However, 81 percent said
they feel free to practice
their faith in America.
When asked to list the
most important domestic

determine a presidential
choice, almost 40 percent of
respondents cited civil
rights, followed by the

For the past five years,
Kay Jewelers' parent

plush animals to its
jewelry customers during
the holiday season. The
company has raised more
than $4.4 million for the

Money raised from this
year's promotion of plush
puppies is part of
Sterling's $5 million

21 Kay Jewelers

Memphis earned the

Saviour, which is Christ
the Lord. And this shall
be a sign unto you; Ye
shall find the babe
wrapped in swaddling

And suddenly there was
with the angel a multitude
of the heavenly host
praising God, and saying,
Glory to God in the

peace, good will toward
men. And all they that
heard it wondered at those
things which were told
them by the shepherds.
Remember in Luke
2:13 a multitude of the
Heavenly Host were
involved in His birth. We
see also that God Himself
is involved in the birth of
His Son (or His Word).

Ghost descended in a
bodily shape like a dove
upon him, and a voice
came from heaven, which
said, Thou art my beloved

pleased." God confessed
that Jesus is His only

In Genesis 1:1, it says,
In the beginning God (1)

His word in Jesus (3) He

Jesus is Spirit. He is the

three are one. Man is
also three in one-body,
soul and spirit. In John 1,
Jesus said, I am the light

Constance (1414-1418)
was a controversial
assembly that wanted to
put councils on a regular:
schedule mainly to assert
their claim to authority
over the papacy. In 1417
Constance stated: "The
frequent holding of general
councils is a pre-eminent
means of cultivating the
Lord's patrimony. It roots
out the briar's, thorns, and
thistles of heresies, errors,

deviations; reforms what is

importance of a general
council. In 1512, five
years before Martin Luther
posted 95 Theses, John
Colet, the dean of St. Paul's
Cathedral in London and a
friend of Erasmus,
preached a sermon to a
gathering of England's
clergy in which he clearly
stated: "For nothing ever
happens more detrimental
to the church of Christ than
the omission of councils,
both general and
provincial." He and others
knew the church needed to
call a council to address
critical conditions.
While general councils
met for a variety of
reasons, Vatican 11 is
considered to be the first
council without a serious
doctrinal issue at the head
of its agenda. Vatican II
was a different type of
council, and Pope Paul VI

Dua or Salat prayer is

As a matter of fact, a

Galveston and the
Mainland, and was
instrumental in changing
all advertising in


Galveston to use the

Despite Andy's
infallible track record in
Galveston's business
sector, Andy equaled. that
success in community and
civic matters. When a
political group from
Austin tried to move the
headquarters of the Texas
Navy out of Galveston,
Andy, and a small group
from Galveston met with
Governor Connallg in
Austin and successfully

families. Andy served on
the Board of Directors of
the Salvation Army,
United Way, Goodwill
Industies, the Family
Service Center, the
Galeston Historical
Foundation, and the Grand
Opera House. Andy

Poll
(continued from page 7)
respondents said they visit a
mosque once a week, while
a similar number go to
mosques more frequently.
Six percent said they do not
go to a mosque at all.
Almost all of the
respondents said they are
registered to vote or plan to
vote in November. (All
figures are based on
responses provided by
eligible Muslim voters.
Surveys were faxed and
emailed to Muslim


individuals and
organizations nationwide.)
"This survey shows that
presidential candidates will
have to address issues of
importance to Muslims if
they wish to garner and
maintain support in the

CAIR Executive Director
Nihad Awad. Awad added
that Muslims may be swing

Yes, He meant that His
