Excerpt from A Sermon on Autumn and Its Lessons One afternoon, but a little while ago, I scaled my way on horseback to the very crest of the Allegheny Mountain, which, with satellite ranges, sweeps so proudly through Pennsylvania, and far to the South the Spinal column to a large portion, of the Continent. Fwhen there, I departed from the travelled road aside into the heart of the green forest; wandered among trees, mosses, and feathery ferns. The breeze was abroad, but swept through the swaying branches, and over the bending ferns with a mufiied, mem \nonian murmur. Then, there greeted me - the quavering, rattling song of the locust with his bright, brownshield, and the ringing chirp of the field cricket, rose sadly from the rocking bushes. I knew there, On that solitary mountain height, far from the thronged haunts of men, though the the woods were green, and skies soft, and the snowy tufts of the life-ever-lasting were burdening the atmosphere with´ honeyed fragrance, that I was listening to the dirge of de parting summer, that the heralds Of autumn were wailing around me.

The dramatic, myth-shattering story of how Machiavelli - arguably the most misunderstood thinker of all time - fought to change his corrupt world. Since the publication of The Prince five centuries ago, Machiavelli has been associated with political amorality. But that characterization is unfair. In Be Like the Fox, Erica Benner sets the record straight: far from the ruthless ´´Machiavellian´´ henchman that people think he was, Machiavelli emerges here as a profound ethical thinker who fought to uphold high moral standards and restore the democratic freedoms of his beloved Florence. Shaking the dust from history, Benner masterfully interweaves Machiavelli´s words with those of his friends and enemies, giving us a biography with all the energy of fiction. Through dialogues and diaries, we witness dramatic episodes, including Savonarola´s fiery sermons against the elite in Florence´s piazza, Machiavelli´s secret negotiations with Caterina Sforza at the court of Forlí, and the Florentines´ frantic preparations to resist Pope Julius´s plan to overthrow their Republic. Benner relates how Machiavelli rose as an advisor in the Florentine Republic, advancing the city´s interests as a diplomat and military strategist, only to become a political pariah when the Republic was defeated. His egalitarian politics made him an enemy of the Medici family, and his secular outlook put him at odds with religious zealots. But he soon learned to mask his true convictions, becoming a great artist of foxlike dissimulation. Machiavelli´s masterpiece, The Prince, was in fact a critique of princely power, but the critique had to be veiled, written as it was after the Medici triumphed over the Republic. In Be Like the Fox, the most accurate and compelling portrait of Machiavelli yet, Benner recounts the gripping story of a brilliant political thinker, showing that Machiavelli´s ideas - about democratic institutions, diplomacy, ... 1.

Join one of the top Catholic preachers and Bible study leaders in America in exploring what it means to truly experience the Gospel in your own life. In this series, you will explore what it really means to know, that is, to experience, the new life that Christ has given us through his death. With Msgr. Pope, you will consider how to grasp this life more deeply and experience how the lord ministers to us in our lives through his word, the Sacraments, and the sacred liturgy. See how the word of God does not merely inform, but also performs. Our lord Jesus Christ died on the cross and rose for us. In so doing, he has not only cleansed us from our sins by his precious blood, but has also made available for us an entirely new life by the power of his cross. St. Paul says, if anyone is in Christ he is a new creation, the old things are passed away, behold, all things are made new (2 Cor. 5:17). This is not just a slogan. St. Paul is describing a reality that he and the early Christians actually experienced. He is describing the normal Christian life. More than a Bible study or a series of sermons, these talks were crafted to fully engage your heart, mind and spirit to help you experience life to the fullest. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Msgr.

The Scarlet Letter is a romantic work of fiction in a historical setting, written by Nathaniel Hawthorne. It is considered to be his magnum opus.Set in 17th-century Puritan Boston, Massachusetts during the years 1642 to 1649, it tells the story of Hester Prynne, who conceives a daughter through an adulterous affair and struggles to create a new life of repentance and dignity. Throughout the book, Hawthorne explores themes of legalism, sin, and guilt. The experience of Hester and Dimmesdale recalls the story of Adam and Eve because, in both cases, sin results in expulsion and suffering. But it also results in knowledge - specifically, in knowledge of what it means to be immoral. For Hester, the Scarlet Letter is a physical manifestation of her sin and reminder of her painful solitude. She contemplates casting it off to obtain her freedom from an oppressive society and a checkered past as well as the absence of God. Because the society excludes her, she considers the possibility that many of the traditions held up by the Puritan culture are untrue and are not designed to bring her happiness. As for Dimmesdale, the ´´cheating minister´´, his sin gives him ´´sympathies so intimate with the sinful brotherhood of mankind, so that his chest vibrate[s] in unison with theirs.´´ His eloquent and powerful sermons derive from this sense of empathy. The narrative of the Reverend Arthur Dimmesdale is quite in keeping with the oldest and most fully authorized principles in Christian thought. His ´´Fall´´ is a descent from apparent grace to his own damnation; he appears to begin in purity but he ends in corruption. The subtlety is that the minister´s belief is his own cheating, convincing himself at every stage of his spiritual pilgrimage that he is saved. The rose bush, its beauty a striking contrast to all that surrounds it - as later the beautifully embroidered scarlet ´´A´´ will be held out in part as an invitation to find ´´some sweet moral blossom´´ in the ensuing, tragic tale and in part as an image that ´´the deep heart of nature´´ (perhaps God) may look more kind on the errant Hester and her child than her Puritan neighbors do. Throughout the work, the nature images contrast with the stark darkness of the Puritans and their systems.
