This is an ancient hymn song used by the legion of Mary, an order of the Catholic church focussed on the worship of the great mother. It is a hymn that has antecedents in ancient Egypt and echos the ancient chants to Isis, Maria, the Queen of the patheon of Egyptian gods. It is a hymn also used by all those who know and love the mother, and want to be beneficiaries of her infinite potentials.
BARELY 48 hours to the New Year, a mysterious fire in the early hours of yesterday razed down the entire Justice Chambers and Court Hall of the 55-year-old Court of Appeal in Calabar, the Cross River State capital. It is the first court in Nigeria.
