That Friday, when the Lord was on the Cross, an angel named Ourael took the blood of Christ in a glittering cup and sprinkled it all over the Earth. All grounds that received a drop of the holy blood were chosen to be sanctified and blessed places to establish churches on them and made them their holy seats.

There is no crystal clear thing as this: that history of every part of the world begins with legends. Some we can find written in books and some came down to our generation by oral. The history of this nation – Ethiopia starts with a legend that we would not have the nerve to say ‘you shall know what we speak is true’. Later, in the history, however, all we speak we know, are true for we have brought them from nowhere but credible sources.

Condemning the addicted ones and preaching the negative impacts of this technology would not help anyone to keep away from it or even use it properly. I can see there is quite a reason…Continue
