Seven Dwarfs @ Jesus' Crib, Karen Martinez Dec 2011

Seven Dwarfs @ Jesus' Crib, Karen Martinez

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"I realize as a parent of three in my junior year of college I may be in the minority, especially for a twenty-nine-year old. One of the many joys of parenting if you will, are the many teachable moments that arise. When you first come to terms with the fact that you are a parent, you set out to do the best for your child in every possible way. My "tween" daughter Marielle Jaritza put me to shame and guilt during a recent conversation at my mother‘s ...

How To Have 4 Kids In 8 Months: Big Boy Brendan + 3, Nicole Hough Velazquez Dec 2011

How To Have 4 Kids In 8 Months: Big Boy Brendan + 3, Nicole Hough Velazquez

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"Bringing a child into your life is one of the hardest things. Things change drastically, but for the better. Your life revolves around the needs, wishes and ―wants‖ of a child. You give all you can give to your child and all they give back to you is a messy house, whining and loads dirty of laundry. Children also give something that you cannot touch, see, feel, hear or smell; they give you their unconditional love."


Damasus Winzen Lecture, John Colacino Dec 2011

Damasus Winzen Lecture, John Colacino

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"It was my good fortune recently to acquire some long unavailable commentaries on the sacred liturgy by some of the pioneers of the liturgical movement. Among these are Dame Aemiliana Löhr‘s The Mass Through the Year – the latter being a German Benedictine nun of Herstelle where Dom Odo Casel of Maria Laach served as chaplain. Of course, it is from Maria Laach that the person in whose name this lecture is presented came with two companions to found this monastery of Mt. Savior. And it was he ...

What Was Sherlock Holmes' Alma Mater? Elementary: St. John Fisher College, Tim Madigan Dec 2011

What Was Sherlock Holmes' Alma Mater? Elementary: St. John Fisher College, Tim Madigan

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"As the recent Robert Downey, Jr. movie has clearly demonstrated, interest in all things relating to Sherlock Holmes remains strong. This is just as true at St. John Fisher College as anywhere else, where the immortal detective stories of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle are taught in literature courses by Lisa Jadwin of the Department of English, and where Holmes‘ skills at deduction are discussed in philosopher David White‘s Basic Logic classes. Several other professors, including Donald Muench and Gerry Wildenberg in Mathematics, and Charles Natoli and yours ...

Martin Luther King Jr.: What We Can Learn From Him Today, Christina Guzman

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"Martin Luther King, Jr. was born in Atlanta, Georgia in 1929. He was the eldest son of a Baptist minister, and the grandson of the founder of the Ebenezer Baptist Church in Atlanta, where his father served as a pastor. When Martin Luther King, Jr. accepted his first job as a pastor in Montgomery, Alabama in 1954, he found a black community that had long-standing resentments over the mistreatment of black passengers on the city‘s segregated buses. After the arrest of Rosa Parks in November 1955, King ...

Amaryllis, Emily Barbero

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"Greek mythology explains the origins of the Amaryllis flower through a story of love. A beautiful maiden named Amaryllis falls in love with a shepherd named Alteo, on a mountainside. Alteo had the strength of Hercules and the beauty of Apollo with a passion for flowers. He claimed he would only fall in love with a girl who could bring to him a new type of a flower that he had never seen before. Determined to win his love, Amaryllis traveled to the Oracle of Delphi for guidance ...

God Is Here, Heather Kime

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"Mother Teresa once said, ―I know God will not give me anything I can't handle. I just wish He didn't trust me so much.‖ I often think of this quote when I am struggling with daily obstacles. When the day is over and I reflect on the obstacles God gave me I always realize that He gave them to me to make me a stronger person. God knows what I can handle and will only give me those obstacles that I can get through. There are ...

Anti-Catholicism V. Al Smith: An Analysis Of Anti-Catholicism In The 1928 Presidential Election, Michael Rooney

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"With few exceptions, the details of past presidential elections are largely forgotten over the course of history. As specific campaigns and elections become more distant from contemporary society, people tend to focus on the larger picture of what that election produced, mainly, who actually became the president. And for the majority of the American public, the presidential election of 1928 is no exception to this. But as Allan Lichtman suggests in his book Prejudice and the Old Politics: The Presidential Election of 1928, ―Presidential elections are central events ...

Oh, How He Loves Us, Steven K. Walker

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

―Go to Hell. It's a quote we've all heard, whether it's been said to us or someone around us. I heard it the other day when it was said to someone wearing a Rays‘ jersey by a Red Sox fan. The Rays fan responded with, ―I can't... God loves me."


Enigma Of The Shroud Of Turin, Justin A. Tubiolo May 2011

Enigma Of The Shroud Of Turin, Justin A. Tubiolo

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"There is an unbroken historical record of the Shroud from fourteenth-century France to its current residence in Turin, Italy. Although its whereabouts before that time are unknown, circumstantial evidence has been used to try relating it to earlier contexts in the Middle East (Maher, p.67), including the Gospel accounts. Church authorities challenged the authenticity of the Shroud of Turin from the time of its earliest known historical appearance. French Bishop Pierre d‟Arcis complained in 1389 to Pope Clement VII, during the Avignon Papacy, about something the ...

What Is Faith?, Uwa Oduwa May 2011

What Is Faith?, Uwa Oduwa

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"Faith, like religion, is not impossible to define, but somewhat difficult to group into a single fixed description. There are no laws that require a person or a group of people to have faith; therefore faith comes from our own personal choices and happenings in life. Based on my own experiences in life so far, faith has been a pivotal part when it comes to my outlook on life and my trust in others as well as in myself. Faith also plays a leading role when it comes ...

Religion Is Life Changing, Heather Kime

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"My name is Heather Kime and I am a sophomore at St. John Fisher College. If you asked me six years ago where I would be today, I would not have guessed here. I was raised by my mom who was on a single income. As a child I learned very fast that I would not have the latest technology or the “in-style” clothes. I had to just have the necessities. In high school, it was embarrassing not having two parents around and not being able to afford ...

Diversity Is Part Of My Life, Fareeba Mohammad May 2011

Diversity Is Part Of My Life, Fareeba Mohammad

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"Diversity is a key element in almost every aspect of our lives. It‟s one element that transcends many levels from religion to our daily workplace. We, living in a beautifully diverse country such as the United States of America, often take diversity for granted. America‟s inception was based on the underlying idea of “all are welcomed.”

Remembering Marshall Mcluhan (1911-1980): The Medium And The Message, Tim Madigan

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"A few years back Diane Lucas, then the campus archivist as well as a member of the Lavery Library staff, mentioned to me in passing that Marshall McLuhan's daughter Stephanie had been doing research in our archives on her father's work. Marshall McLuhan?! I was astonished to hear that name mentioned, as it had been years since I'd thought about the communications guru who had coined the phrases "the Global Village" and "the Medium is the Message." But more to the point, what possible connection ...

Faith In A Time Of Doubt: In The Forest, Dee (Geraldine) Hogan

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"This essay is a partial response to a friend who sent me his book of poetry. It became more than a response to his book. It became a thoughtful look at my own faith."


Parallels Between Parenting And Teaching, Ryan Gantner May 2011

Parallels Between Parenting And Teaching, Ryan Gantner

Verbum

In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"On the evening of August 7, 2010, I was driving back from Pittsburgh on a warm summer day. My old car didn‟t have air conditioning, so I was dressed in workout clothes to try to sweat out a hot ride home. I had just been at the Mathematical Association of America‟s Mathfest, their annual summer meeting. I left somewhat early in the last day of the conference so that I would be home before 8:00pm, my daughter Aderyn‟s bedtime. I did indeed get home ...
