I have never attended Catholic Mass. It almost seemed like stepping into a different country. Although he did not state his name and credentials, his attire, formality, and title allowed everyone know that he was a priest. The topic of the speech concerns our human nature to bargain and diminish another person’s work. 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.

The priest professionally illustrated the simplicity and vividness of telling a compelling story. I believe one of the weaknesses with this speech was his loss of informing the audience of his main points, this eventually lead him to go off on a tangent.

Hello! In response to your answer about whether or not religious beliefs dictates politics, I notice that people who are close-minded and judgmental are typically conservative Christians; therefore, they viewpoint on a taboo or a controversial issue is generally justified by the teachings of his or her holy book. Also, I appreciate the other reply where you place numerous historical Christian events into question since it is quite unfathomable how a single person could miraculously part the sea, construct a ship to house one set of every existing animal, or resurrect, after three days, from the

The night is quiet and peaceful, serene, when an explosion occurs in the nearby church. People rush outside, hostile and armed, worried about their religious and civil rights leader. Then, he rises out of the rubble, unscathed, almost as though he was protected with holy intervention.

A Rhetorical Analysis of “Pope Francis speech to Congress” In February of 2015, it was confirmed that Pope Francis was to step on the U.S. soil for the first time ever and was to present the U.S. Congress with a speech to discuss current issues in the world. He arrived in the capitol and spoke to a Joint Session of Congress about major topics such as: immigration, migration, and climate change. He also carefully alluded on some very controversial topics without actually naming the topic, like same-sex marriage and abortions. He touches on these sensitive topics in a serious and formal manner, yet he also uses a few bible references and does not point any fingers but by trying to help us all realize the reality that goes on in the world.

Unlike Beatrice the pastor did not succumb to insanity like she did. He stayed strong even after what happened to his wife.

At the Virginia convention in 1774, the delegates such as Patrick Henry, gather to decide their course of action, in a time where their primary goal was to rid themselves of their oppressor, Great Britain. Patrick Henry addresses the other delegates and discloses his opinion on what course of action the people should take. In his speech at the Virginia Convention, Patrick Henry forcefully influences the audience to go to war with Great Britain through diction, figurative language and rhetorical devices and by confronting them with their current position of danger in the face of the inevitable British Invasion. Patrick Henry emphasizes his opinion of the necessary war by using diction such as ethos and logos, through appeals to their senses that make connections for the audience. Through Henry’s repetitive utilization of ethos
The men took their guns along, so did Buck, and kept them between their knees or stood them handy against the wall. The Shepherdsons done the same. It was pretty ornery preaching—all about brotherly love, and such-like tiresomeness; but everybody said it was a good sermon, and they all talked it over going home, and had such a powerful lot to say about faith and good works and free grace and preforeordestination, and I don’t know what all, that it did seem to me to be one of the roughest Sundays I had run across yet.” This text shows how society is corrupt, for multiple reasons. Not only are families who kill each other going to a sacred place together under a temporary cease-fire, they are also hearing a preacher speak about brotherly love and saying that it is a good sermon.
Ralph Waldo Emerson, on July 15, 1838, delivered his acclaimed speech, “The Divinity School Address,” to the graduating class of Harvard Divinity School. Desiring to leave a lasting impact on the students’ beliefs on what religion truly was, Emerson cunningly utilized the opportunity that arose out of addressing an easily influenced graduating class. A fervent transcendentalist who believed in the innate goodness of people, Emerson attempted to convey, in this message, what he believed the essence of true religion was: a divine worship of one’s self, a belief that is in direct opposition with what Christianity encourages: a devoted worship of Christ and a reckoning of one’s carnal self. In “The Divinity School Address”, not only did Emerson

Of primary importance is the consideration of the congregation when a preacher is first approaching the text. This point is of vital importance as it signifies that the speaker is a member of the body of Christ and the congregation.

This speech was given before a big championship game football game to a professional football team that was crumbling apart.
