The Miracle of Our Lady of Fatima

Priest and believers during their time were put into jail. Lucia, Jacinta, and Francisco saw a beautiful lady on the tree surrounded by clouds. She was sent down from heaven. At first, Francisco couldn’t see or hear the lady but he was asked to say the rosary and so he did. They agreed to offer themselves to God and endure all the sufferings for all those who have sinned. The lady said to them, “Say the rosary everyday to obtain peace for the world and to end the war.” But some people won’t believe them.

In school we are asked to say the Holy Rosary and that was not meant for nothing. Through saying the rosary, our Lady keeps us closer to God. She bridges us to Him and we ask her to pray for us. Many people would think as if it is weird, some may believe and some may not, but only those who believe will see her and through praying the Holy Rosary we will be able to communicate with her and to God as well. If we offer a rosary then maybe we could still obtain peace in the world where there is full of chaos, crimes, and corruption. We could do something in our own little ways to stop this. If people would open their eyes, ear, and heart we would be able to see our Lady too. We would find peace in our hearts and to the whole world. If we offer ourselves to God we must endure the sufferings for those who have sinned. But that doesn’t mean God would abandon us, God will forever be merciful and will protect and guide us.

As a Dominican student, we have to take part of the great responsibility our Lady has given to us and that is to say the Holy Rosary and to teach others too. And that is what we do during our DCOM, we teach children to say the Rosary. We may be young, but by praying the rosary we can…...

A Certain Lady

...Prof: Rennie English 102 April 16, 2013 "A Certain Lady" is a poem written in the past, but is still relevant in today's time. Dorothy Parker was an amazing writer. "A Certain Lady" was interpreted as a woman who pretended to be somebody she is not. Due to the title "Certain Lady" that Parker uses as the theme of this poem, they could describe who the speaker really was. She was a woman who hid her inner feelings just to please her husband; it also shows how much he does not or will not know this eccentric. "All the straining things within my heart you'll never know.... And what goes on my love, while you're away, you will never know." These line tells me how sad she was and the emotion she had to deal with in the relationship. The first stanza of this poem explains all the pretence she portrays whenever he's around. " Oh, I can smile for you, and tilt my head, and drink your rushing words with eager lips, and paint my mouth for you a fragrant red , And trace your brows with tutored finger-tips." The image of this phrase tells me how ignorant he was and too blind to see the tears in her eyes. She pretended to be who she's not. The speaker's tone also describes her experiences with the situation. " Painting my mouth for you a fragrant red" sounds like things he admired on her the most. So, she is to be the top of her game and playing her role, and yet he cannot see the character she is: she must be a lady with lots of experience. " When you rehearse your list......

The Lady with the Dog

...Austin Tullis English 1102 Prof. Atkinson The Lady with the Dog The Lady with the Dog encompasses a story of star crossed lovers, Dmitri Dimtritch and Anna Sergeyevna, who yearned to be with each other, fighting against all odds. Dmitri is an older gentleman who is married but gets bored quite easily with the married lifestyle and seeks out casual relations with many different women viewing them as just an object. Anna on the other hand is an innocent woman who feels as though she is in a rut with her husband and has lost feelings for him but feels far too guilty to leave him. She does in fact feel as though she needs to be alone or rather enjoying the company of other people by vacationing away from her husband, but why bring a dog into this story? Even though the dog may not seem as it plays a big role in the story it certainly plays a key part where Dmitri uses the dog to create a way to interact with Anna for the first time. However the dog will show up again towards the middle with a different approach but still being a key factor in a deciding moment. There are many cases in this story where you will be led to believe a typical outcome that many love stories have but you will be thrown a curve ball where this might look like more of a tragedy, such as what was seen in Romeo and Juliet. Anton Chekhov, the author, made this story very intriguing by leaving gaps in some parts of the story for the reader to interpret what the outcome would be. I was fascinated with how he...

Lady Audley

...Dustin Lee Dr. Shafer ENG 3850 April 29, 2015 Lady Audley’s Secret Lady Audley’s Secret is a sensation fiction novel that also has a play. The novel was published in 1862 and written by Mary Elizabeth Braddon, while the the play came out soon after. The novel begins with the sensation element of marriage and displays many other elements throughout the novel. The play, Lady Audley’s Secret, on the other hand leaves out many characters such as Clara Talboys, Mr. Talboys, Little George, and others because plays have a time constraint so they don’t lose the audiences interest and it also allows the audience to put their focus on the main issue and element at hand which is Lady Audley’s madness. In the novel readers see many elements, elements such as murder, adultery, bigamy, madness, emotions, poverty, marriage, public appeal, family life, mystery, violence, blackmail, arson, and tons of suspenseful action. On the other hand the play does not include all of these elements. The big elements like romance and marriage are almost excluded from the play totally which is a bit different because the readers of the novel are used to seeing these elements having read the novel. The difference in elements composed in the play compared to the novel helps the audience really focus on what element is being magnified and looked at deeply. That element is madness and insanity which Lady Audley holds. Madness in the 19th century and Victorian era was a big and very interesting......

Lady Macbeth

...Alana jones Throughout society women were considered to be second class citizens who were expected to obey their husbands, stereotypically they were seen as the weaker sex and insecure. Women were also socially neglected, as they were expected to remain at home whilst their respective husbands ensured the upkeep of the family by managing the family finances. The male population at this point in time ignorantly viewed women as, innocent people, seemingly unaware that women had the same feelings and emotions as themselves. In the literature studied women are portrayed in a more dominant and powerful people. For instance Lady Macbeth would not be your typical Elizabethan woman. Steinbeck`s Of Mice And Men was influenced by its social, historical and cultural context. `all the main characters in Of Mice And Men and men acknowledge, at one point or another, to envisaging a different and better life. Before her death, Curley`s wife confesses her desire to be in the movies. However, Steinbeck`s view of the harsh reality of 1930s America is alluded to before the story begins: circumstances have robbed most of the characters of these dreams before they could become reality. Curley`s wife for instance, has resigned to being married to someone she doesn’t love. What makes all of these dreams typically American is that the dreamers wish for perfect happiness. Steinbeck presents Curley`s wife in many different ways throughout the text. Overall, we should consider how Steinbeck......

Reflection on Message of Our Lady

...ALISON O. MENDIOLA BSBA 1D God our Father is our source, giver of life and power. He sent down his only begotten son Jesus Christ to redeem our sins. Surely, it’s painful for a mother and father to sacrifice their son for other people. But how come that we, His people didn’t notice this sacrifice and that we don’t pay any attention to the message of Our Lady. In all simplicity Mary at La Salette calls the two children to come near. Her words echo her Son’s invitation to come to him that we may find rest from our burdens and refreshment for our spirits. I’ve learned that we should feel welcomed and loved and that we should come nearer to God who desires only good for us. She reminded us that God continues to break into our world, restoring and renewing the face of the earth. This is the good news! This is the source of our joy! I’ve learned that no matter how careless, rude and immoral we are, He is always there. Guiding us into the right path in life. Mary said  "If the harvest is ruined, it is only on account of yourselves. I warned you last year. You paid no heed! Instead, you swore. The rest will do penance through the famine.” Mary’s message startles us to an awareness of the evils of our world and to our own indifference. Today two-thirds of the world suffers or dies from hunger. Human rights are ignored across the face of the earth and injustice lies in our very doorstep. I’ve learned that we shouldn’t abuse what He have given us and that we should give worth and......

During the busy holiday season, C-26 Case 1 The Cherry Lady some additional factor preventing the process from making a satisfactory piece of candy. After spending almost a year experimenting, it became evident to Alicia that she could not rely upon this copacker to produce her product. Alicia commented, I’m committed to quality. I use high quality ingredients and will only ship the very best product possible. If candy has too many air bubbles or the filling leaks, I will not sell this candy. Maintaining high standards is what is necessary to compete in the premium chocolate market. If you don’t have a quality product, consumers are not going to let you stay around too long. There’s so much good competition out there, so you absolutely must have high quality. I’m not about to let the company’s reputation be blemished by bringing something to the market that is not up to our standards. Alicia was extremely frustrated by the initial copacking experience and felt that she may have wasted her time and money. But she realized that the process of scaling up any product from small batch production to mass production required fierce trial-and-error and considerable patience, and she refused......

Dangerous Lady

...Lady, dark, dangerous, and daring, With that sweet countenance you’re wearing, I’d sooner have you locked inside my heart, Than outside of its walls despairing And our love would be the finest art, Built of glass pane and crystal part, Lovely by the day, enchanted by the night, Born of a sly, serene, and secret start Then in a wicked star of blinding white, Fate would free our fiery passions to ignite, And sea-strewn boats would lose their way of wander, As our dawn eclipsed their map of starlight Though our hearts would grow naught but fonder, Another force would be swelling yonder, Of course in our lover’s ecstasy, We would hardly stop to ponder The sudden stillness of the sea, The absence of the wind within a tree, Thick horizon thundercloud heads rearing, And air growing stale and hard to breathe So we would miss the calm before the storm appearing, Never expect the enemy we ought be fearing, And though our foe is not like to sport disguise, We will never sense the danger nearing, So it will be to our absolute surprise, When they come charging with chaos in their eyes, And the glass we so loved at first, Will reveal itself our ultimate demise For any arrow that comes flying in headfirst, Will surely leave our crystal shattered and dispersed, And as we fall in agony and anguish, Our enemies shall satisfy their vengeful thirst Yet if life requires I relinquish, Our crystalline vitreous bliss, Spare me that fate and give me......

The Lady or the Tiger

...The Lady Or The Tiger? By: Frank Stockton In the very olden time there lived a semi-barbaric king, whose ideas, though somewhat polished and sharpened by the progressiveness of distant Latin neighbors, were still large, florid, and untrammeled, as became the half of him which was barbaric. He was a man of exuberant fancy, and, withal, of an authority so irresistible that, at his will, he turned his varied fancies into facts. He was greatly given to self-communing, and, when he and himself agreed upon anything, the thing was done. When every member of his domestic and political systems moved smoothly in its appointed course, his nature was bland and genial; but, whenever there was a little hitch, and some of his orbs got out of their orbits, he was blander and more genial still, for nothing pleased him so much as to make the crooked straight and crush down uneven places. Among the borrowed notions by which his barbarism had become semified was that of the public arena, in which, by exhibitions of manly and beastly valor, the minds of his subjects were refined and cultured. But even here the exuberant and barbaric fancy asserted itself. The arena of the king was built, not to give the people an opportunity of hearing the rhapsodies of dying gladiators, nor to enable them to view the inevitable conclusion of a conflict between religious opinions and hungry jaws, but for purposes far better adapted to widen and develop the mental energies of the people. This......

Waterhouse and the Lady

...Nina Guidry Survey of the Arts II 15 April 2015 Waterhouse and The Lady John William Waterhouse was a Romantic painter whose style harked back to the Pre- Raphaelite Brotherhood (PRB) of the mid-nineteenth century. He encompassed elements from the Impressionist art movement of the late nineteenth century to create hauntingly beautiful images in oils on canvas. Three such creations manifested from Alfred, Lord Tennyson’s The Lady of Shalott. This poem, written in four parts, is based on Arthurian legend of an innocent young woman confined in a tower by a curse. She lived on an island overlooking Camelot. Her curse is such that she could not look directly upon Camelot. She viewed the outside world through a mirror in her quarters. Waterhouse painted the three oils in reverse chronology to the poem. In this essay, his composition, balance, use of light, color, movement and symbolism will be discussed. The Lady of Shalott (1888) references Part IV of the poem where she escapes the island by boat only to pay for the brevity of her freedom with her life. She and the boat are the main focus of this painting. Her porcelain skin, flowing red hair, virginal white gown draw eyes to her before slowly drifting over the boat. This scene is balanced by the view of hills through a break in the wooded background. The folds in the fabric of her gown, swallows in flight, and the play of light on the water create a sense of movement. Something was......

Sweet Ladies

...Sweet ladies “Sweet ladies” is a British short story adapted from the original story written by Rachel Cusk and published in 2003. Sweet Ladies is about a woman named Sylvia Furnish who owns a candy store. One day a small group of women come into her store with all of their children and she catches one of the children stealing candy. Sylvia confronts the mother, and the son, named Troy, starts defending his mother, but ends up apologizing and returns the candy bar. The story stretches over a day, and it is written from Sylvia’s point of view. The story takes place in Doniford, which is a city in the southern part of England and it is described as a cold and windy city because it is near the sea. Mostly the characters in the story are in the candy store, which is a two story building where Sylvia lives on the upper floor. The store is not described as good as I could be, but when you read the story you assume that it is a small dark store because she describes the smell as a “chalky smell of sweets” (page 1line 33) and there is a bell over the door that chimes every time someone walks in. In the store Sylvia sells candy, tobacco and some stationary (page 1line 31). Sylvia Furnish is a very strong minded and bitter woman, but deep down she turns out to be kind and loving (page 4 lines 132-133) because she decides to give Troy a candy bar, the next time he comes to the store, even though he just tried to steal from her. The reason why she is so bitter could be because she...

Ladies and Gentleman

...point was about the term “ladies and gentlemen.” It would be easy to think of upper class women in flashy dresses and extravagant hats and men in tailcoats and top hats when talking about ladies and gentlemen. However, one of my goals when using the terms is to make their definitions much more than mere appearance, if appearance at all. This modernization of the terms helps bring the definition into the current century and throw away the traditional and very close-minded definition. It is for this reason that I believe being a lady or gentleman is based on personality, how a person treats others, I speak for most people who use the term “ladies and gentlemen” in reference to a person’s conduct, not a person’s class, social standing, race, sexuality. Some, when faced with the terms “ladies and gentlemen,” will immediately assume the worst by using the outdated definitions. Some will also dig for reasons to label those who use “ladies and gentlemen”. In labeling us this way, these people do not facilitate any sort of progress for the terms or for any sort of unity for women, or men, ladies or gentleman. We live where we ought to not judge people by the color of their skin, their class, gender, or sexuality, with all of this, there are still groups who refuse to take off their blinders. Ladies and Gentleman, now there is a saying that has been with us for a long time, but what does it really mean and where did it come from? Let’s start with the ladies as we all have been......

Ladies and Gentelmen

...Ladies and Gentlemen Abstract While many believe that the idea of chivalry is dead, and that noble ladies and gentlemen are things of past, and you may think that you can only see a man hold a door open for a lady at a renaissance festival, I know a few people who might disagree. Ladies and Gentlemen Many people believe that etiquette is nothing more than the art of trying to catch someone using the incorrect fork at a dinner party. They however are mistaken, as etiquette has served as a code of social behavior for centuries, starting with the nobles, and the idea of ladies, gentlemen courtier. Although few people think of etiquette at any time except on the occasion of their wedding, we all however mostly practice it every day, often as a matter of routine. Though formal and elaborate manners have always been required for life in the Royal Court, but are these ideas of ladies and gentlemen an out dated notion, or do more people than you would think still believe in this way of life. When considering the definitions of a lady or gentlemen, you would most likely thing of a lady as a well-mannered and considerate woman with high standards of proper behavior, and a gentleman as a man of gentle or noble birth or superior social position, or something very similar to the definition of a lady. Etiquette as we think of it was established in the Versailles court of French King Louis XIV. There was a large circle of courtiers, ladies and gentlemen whose main......
