(Doc 7) A Priest in Italy, Father Dragoni, provided for those with the plague by feeding the ill and paid guards to help with the recovery process. As a priest at that time, Father Dragoni worked with the state and people in high positions to help those who were impacted by the plague. He felt the obligation to help those to practice good deeds, most likely for salvation, an idea that was spread among the Catholics in Italy during that time. (Doc 9) The Plague Column, built after the Plague thanked God for ending it. This shows how the people of Vienna looked up to God for comfort and is the one who is believed to be behind all events that occured (Doc 15).

Poverty was the life and death of Jesus. This is a privilege because poverty allows a stronger connection with Jesus because he lives through similar situations. It shows people that others can survive and be in poverty. The antidote to poverty is relationship, which is the connection between God. They believed that goods and services were sent from God.
The reason that Charlemagne was the most powerful king of all of Europe was because of his leadership and character as a king. Before Charlemagne took control of the European subcontinent. The continent was in the dark ages because there was no peace in the land. There were multiple tribes who were fighting each other for total control of the land. The Frankish and Saxons were fighting each other for several decades before Charlemagne was king.
The act of crying and screaming by Brother for the death of his brother Doodle is a pure tragic scene and by such scene the reader makes the readers feel that Brother loves his brother Doodle and for such love he tried to protect him from an outside world. Such ending of The Scarlet Ibis is surprizing for both the narrator and the reader. In fact, the death of Doodle after growing up is unexpected by neither the narrator nor the reader.

Telemachus looks and acts the part of his father, astonishing those who presumably knew him as a boy. In book two, Telemakhos’ argument caused confusion. Telemakhos’ believes that his father is lost while; the suitors believe that his father is dead. In lines (49-52), Telemachus states “My distinguished
This woman is not in the novel as she is presented dead but she is remembered by George and Lennie as she appears in Lennie’s daydreams. Aunt Clara showed the motherly figure as she was Lennie's caretaker but treated him like a son, this is backed up by the following quotation." you never give a thought to George", in this quote she is telling Lennie off in much the same way a mother would do. This denotes the affection she had for Lennie. Linking it up she is a maternal and generous lady, she gave love to Lennie as he is her son.
Of course, Gabriel is Troy’s brother and not his son, but through out the play, Troy is unusually kind and patient with Gabriel. Troy treats his brother that way because he already knows the horrors Gabriel had go through in his life. Gabriel fought in World War 2 for his country, was severely injured, and came back home to a country and a society that still rejected him—for the color of his skin. Yet, the government gave Gabriel a certain reparation for his injury, but Troy accepted that money on his own to buy his house. Evidently, because of Gabriel’s circumstances and Troy’s usage of Gabriel’s money, he feels guilty and decides to do anything/everything for his
Fueled by the Eucharist he developed an early spiritual life. At age 17 Pier joined the St. Vincent de Paul Society , so he help the poor and needy. After World War 1 he helped the demobilized by escorting them home or wherever they wanted to go. When he was in collage Pier decided to become a mining engineer to “ serve Christ better among the miners.” But then he realized this was not the call for him. Frassati had little but gave much.
In this poem all the son sees is battered knuckles on his father with “palms caked hard by dirt.” This paints a description of an abusive father that does not love his son because if he did love his son he would not hurt him. The father is first introduced with “whiskey on his breath” (line 1) which can be inferred that he is an alcoholic and this creates a negative image that the reader can see and even smell.The son though seems to notice all this, but still seems to love his father and admire him. The waltz represents a repetitive step and in the poem the waltz is his father’s constant abuse and interrupts the sweet idealistic dance. The boy’s mother had a face that “could not unfrown itself” meaning that she was an unhappy wife in a brutal marriage. Mothers are known to be the nice, soft, and loving person in the family.
Waldo and his followers settled in the high valleys of Piedmont, and in France, in the Luberon, Waldo and his followers still continued in their pursuit of Christianity based on the New Testament. During this time they were forced to stay in the high valleys of Piedmont for a while until it was clear to go out. Finally Waldo was excommunicated by Pope Lucius III during the synod held at Verona in 1184, and regarded as heresy. The Roman Catholic Church began to persecute the Waldensians, and many were tried and sentenced to death in various European countries during the 12th, 13th, and 14th centuries. Many Christians were fleeing to the maps and hiding there to save there lives and hiding away from them.
Waitstill and Martha Sharp were two highly rare individuals. I personally felt very touched and thankful for Martha and Waitstill Sharp because my grandfather was saved by a man with the same righteousness and bravery as the Sharps. Not only were the Sharps not Jewish, but they were also Americans. These two beings had no relation to the people they helped, yet still risked their lives to do so. The church that they belonged to asked for volunteers to go to Prague to deliver aid to the refugees.
He built homes for people that needed, and also built hospitals. In Paris he built a hospital for the blind people that also included a chapel for the men that stayed there so they could pray and worship. He also turned a hostel outside Paris into a home for women in poverty because of prostitution, called House of the Daughters of God. King Louis love for the poor was an important was very obvious. Charlemagne was a military conqueror so he used this talent into the service of the church and for taking over most of western Europe and to compel his subject people into converting into Christianity.
