He describes his lips as “blushing pilgrims” to assure Juliet that his intentions are pure. He wants to get personal, but he still remains spiritual as well. The sonnet includes vocabulary regarding body parts such as the hands, lips, and palms, as well as religious vocabulary such as shrines, saints, and pilgrims. They were fulfilling their physical desires while simultaneously addressing their religious concerns. The conversation is made up of several Christian metaphors, and has very strong
(b) Invitation to attend the Marriage Supper of the Lamb “Let us be glad and rejoice, and give honour to him: for the marriage of the Lamb is come, and his wife hath made herself ready. And to her was granted that she should be arrayed in fine linen, clean and white: for the fine linen is the righteousness of saints. And he saith unto me, Write, Blessed [are] they which are called unto the marriage supper of the Lamb” (Revelations 19:9, 10). The Greek word “harphazo” describes rapture as an event which will spark wild excitement and ecstasy primarily because all the raptured saints will (not only escape the ruthless reign of the Antichrist but) enjoy the privilege of being invited to the Marriage Supper of the Lamb. The event is called
You see this news was ground-breaking that even angles were amazes. Church is no small matter. It is something that modern believers for the most part do not understand rightly. My brothers and sisters Christ loves and died for the church, Christ builds His church, Christ Adds to His Church, and the purpose of the church is to worship Him, to evangelize the world. We must take the church very serious.

A central theme that is described in their writings is the act of preparing the soul for the journey into the afterlife. To many mystics, the way to purify your soul differed, but the importance of purifying the soul of the original sin of Adam and Eve was pedestrian and paramount to one’s salvation. In this respect, Dante Aligheieri, the famous Italian poet, can be described as a mystic due to underlying Christian themes of death and preparing the soul for the afterlife present in his most famous poem: The Divine Comedy. By addressing and emphasizing themes of love, free will, and suffering, Dante’s Purgatorio, the second story in the Divine Comedy, represents themes that describe and reinforce Christian underpinnings of preparing one’s soul for the afterlife. All in all, these themes represent elements of popular religion because every Christian was exceptionally concerned about their place afterlife, specifically whether or
The priest orated stories to inform and mainly pursue not to belittle one another’s experience on this planet. This was taken place at University of the Pacific’s Morris Chapel, Sunday evening. Though I can safely say that the majority of the audience consisted of frequent Catholic followers, I noticed a number of students who are also in COMM 27. Overall the speech was very compelling and easy to follow. I knew exactly when the priest transitioned from prayer to story from his use of attention grabbing device and critical pauses.
There are many similar themes that pervade both Wilfred Owen’s Anthem, for Doomed Youth, and George Herbert’s Prayer, such as war, and prayer. Strong emotions regarding both of those themes are conveyed through the juxtaposition of imagery, the personification of weaponry, and the use of metaphor to explain the conceptual. Language is also a critical element in both sonnets, shown through the use of alliteration in Anthem, and flowing lyricism in Prayer, demonstrating it is approached in strikingly different ways to achieve the desired effect. The prominence of religion and religious symbolism is an important factor of both poems, which reflects the importance of religion in matters such as war, and more obviously, prayer. Owen’s Anthem, for
Sentiments expressed by Mary in “Mary Speaks,” “Mary’s Magnificat,” and “Our Lady’s Lullaby” emerge, not as the spontaneous expression of Mary’s unique experience, but as the unnatural words of a devotional poet. “I did not sin but, Son of God and mine ,/I felt temptation, stood one step before/Decisions made in thought or word or sign,” Jennings writes in the opening lines of “Mary Speaks,” and in the opening lines of “Our Lady’s Lullaby” she writes : “My needy, dwindled creature lie/ And weep laments of later men./ Are you also divinity?” Similarly, the words Christ speaks in the numerous poems about his suffering and passion are just static and inert utterances about the relation his human and his divine nature. Jennings may have intended to offer a fresh viewpoint on the heroic experience of God as man, by emphasizing his humanity, but she succeeds only in creating commonplace poems which depict a nervous, self-pitying Christ who grievously laments his “two natures” and his fate. These poems are representative of the many poems from Consequently I Rejoice (1977) which Jennings has deleted from Collected
While watching Christmas cantata we are so happy that we want to hold Easter cantata at the town of Berhampur. When Pastor Kim Soo-Yeon told us to held Easter cantata we are very happy and want to do it in a grand and perfect way. With a zealous heart, we started directly after getting the date from church. Though in Berhampur we have very few members of the church, we had a confident heart that with our connection we can get a better place for cantata. We had approached a local church to use their land for Easter cantata, they agreed to provide the land free of cost and asked for a rescheduling of the date.
She called this insight ‘Little Way of Spiritual Childhood’. This will later become the central theses of her spirituality and won the interest of so many spiritual giants. She regarded herself as a child who could trust and depend entirely on God’s love for everything. The merciful nature of God, for her was inseparable with her conception of trust and dependency on God . Therese emphasized the love and the gentleness of God who she appreciated as mother as well as
