In the “Time of the Butterflies” is a hidden propaganda novel during the cold war when Catholicism and the western world heavily opposed the evils of Communism.

In pg.53, the Catholic Church is in full support of the dictator and paints him as a holy saint, a Jesus Christ figure.
In Pat Conroy’s “Confessions of an Ex-Catholic”, Conroy describes the love he had for the Catholic mass rituals, the Georgian chants, and the prayer even though he left the character and swears to never return. Conroy includes that, although he was thankful for this upbringing, he will never force his children in the church. Conroy also confesses that while he is an ex-Catholic he is still part of the church and forever will be. The purpose of Conroy’s confession is to admit and almost convince the reader, the audience, that even after leaving a religion or certain belief, one is always part of it and it is a part of one. “Just as I always will be American and Southern, I will always be Catholic.
Pope Urban II’s speech at Clermont in 1095 was a call to crusade given outdoors to the nobles, commoners and church leaders of the Western European Christians (the Franks). The people were moved by this speech and it changed history, launching the first crusade to capture Jerusalem from the Muslim Turks. After hearing Pope Urban II’s speech, thousands of Western European Christians were moved to embark on the dangerous journey and fight in the crusade. I believe the main reasons they were moved and persuaded to fight was; 1) they felt it was their Christian duty, 2) Pope Urban promised them absolution for their sins and 3) they felt compelled to defend Christianity, their holy land and the Eastern Christians.

Ignatius Loyola and Marie de l’Incarnation illustrate the highest forms of Catholic piety throughout the 16th and 17th centuries. Both the Jesuit and Ursaline exemplify the value of charity, education, mysticism, humility, perseverance, and impoverishment. Ascetism dominated both of their lives and was matched only by their advocacy and activist campaigns. While every Christian may not have participated in every tenant as grandly as Loyola and l’Incarnation, they comprehended the value of their lessons and aimed towards a deeper personal understanding of their relationship to God—just as Ignatius and Marie did.
Presidents and leaders alike pick us up when we feel down. These extraordinary men strived to fight for others' rights. John F.

The Baroque period covers one hundred and fifty years from 1600 to 1750. Its characteristics tend to include, lavish, over the top, expensive and much more then necessary. The period is painted literally with architecture, paintings, clothing, food and much more that continuously begs people of today to ask ‘why?’. The use of frill and extravagance in art in this period has become less of a question of ‘why’ and more of a question ‘where is the extra?’, because this part in history is centered around adding extra ornamentation to everything. With such an over the top part in history, it would seem impossible to pick one piece that could embody every aspect of the Baroque Era but it is to be proven that one piece has such potential.
On January 20, 1961 President John Fitzgerald Kennedy delivered his inaugural address to the American people. In this speech Kennedy portrays the 1960s as a new beginning; a chance to not only improve America, but to improve the entire world. He attempts to create an optimistic tone that would have been reflected in the audience by describing his beliefs in the future and his support and admiration of the past. He appeals to his audience religiously and patriotically by stating that all the blessings America has are because of God and the hard work and determination of its citizens (John F. Kennedy: Inaugural Address – January 20, 1961). Kennedy commences his speech by stating how his election is a new start for America; that it is not only prosperous for the Democrat Party, but for each and every American citizen.

Freedom - "A feeling of exultation overtook her, as if some power of significant import had been given her to control the working of her body and her soul. She grew daring and reckless, overestimating her strength. She wanted to swim far out, where no woman had swum before." "You have been a very, very foolish boy, wasting your time dreaming of impossible things when you speak of Mr. Pontellier setting me free!
