Download Free Who Is Mary? PDF by Vittoria Colonna Full Book and published by University of Chicago Press. This book was released on 2010-07-15 with total page 312 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: For women of the Italian Renaissance, the Virgin Mary was one of the most important role models. Who Is Mary? presents devotional works written by three women better known for their secular writings: Vittoria Colonna, famed for her Petrarchan lyric verse; Chiara Matraini, one of the most original poets of her generation; and the wide-ranging, intellectually ambitious polemicist Lucrezia Marinella. At a time when the cult of the Virgin was undergoing a substantial process of redefinition, these texts cast fascinating light on the beliefs of Catholic women in the Renaissance, and also, in the cases of Matraini and Marinella, on contemporaneous women’s social behavior, prescribed for them by male writers in books on female decorum. Who Is Mary? testifies to the emotional and spiritual relationships that women had with the figure of Mary, whom they were required to emulate as the epitome of femininity. Now available for the first time in English-language translation, these writings suggest new possibilities for women in both religious and civil culture and provide a window to women’s spirituality, concerning the most important icon set before them, as wives, mothers, and Christians.
Download Free The Tree of Knowledge Is Mary’S Sweet Vine PDF by Bella Louise Allen Full Book and published by AuthorHouse. This book was released on 2018-04-27 with total page 266 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In the twenty-first century, there are few books written as firsthand accounts of the experience of complete abandonment to God. God has brought forward mystics in the past two thousand years of Christianity, individuals totally devoted to him, and the message of divine love and mercy. He has this message for us today. Gods messages come with warning. Warnings remind us that heaven and hell are realthat sin offends and wounds the heart of God. St. Julie Ann, as God calls her, has been a vessel of the Lord since she had her first vision of Jesus Christ in 2006. No words were exchanged. She walked down a hallway and knelt and kissed his feet. Then she had a near-death experience in 2012. God returned her to life after a surgery gone wrong. This was the beginning of her great adventure and passionate love affair with her Lord. Like so many of the chosen ones of God, St. Julie Ann is honest and uncomplicated. She records her experiences in her own words, without theological training. She lives a consecrated life outside of a religious community and struggles to support herself and her children and grandchildren, working three jobs and sacrificing for her family as much of the world does today. Although Bella Louise conveys St. Julie Anns experiences from her daily lessons, visions, and experiences with Jesus Christ and his mother, Mary, the idea of Christ is with us, and Mary within us is a basic belief of Christianity and Catholicism. You will be reminded that the words of love and devotion spoken by Jesus to Julie Ann are words he speaks to all of us. We all could live this great romance! In a world without kindness, Julie Anns teaching from Mother Mary, her words of compassion, and care for the children of the world reminds us that we are always embraced by her maternal heart. By writing this honest and true account, Bella Louise Allen provides you with a compelling portrait of what it means to live with total abandonment to God while struggling to live at the same time in the everyday world.

Download Free My Name is Mary PDF by Mary Fisher Full Book and published by Simon and Schuster. This book was released on 2012-12-04 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: "The AIDS virus is not a political creature. It does not care whether you are Democrat or Republican. It does not ask whether you are Black or White, male or female, gay or straight, young or old. Tonight I represent an AIDS community whose members have been reluctantly drafted from every segment of American society." So said Mary Fisher in her historic speech at the 1992 Republican National Convention. My Name Is Mary chronicles the emotional events leading up to and following this momentous evening. In a memoir that exhibits the same grace and unflinching honesty that moved the nation, Mary Fisher shares the story of her life. Raised in a socially prominent, affluent Michigan family, Mary Fisher seemed to have it all. She socialized with important and often famous friends and eventually married a handsome artist with whom she had two sons. Although the marriage ended in divorce, Mary continued to thrive in her roles as mother and artist. However, in 1991 Mary's world was turned upside down by the news from her ex-husband that he had AIDS. An HIV test revealed that Mary, too, was infected. Terrified, struggling against fear, depression, and anger, Mary ultimately found a new life mission in her positive status—she began to educate others about the need for compassion and activism in the face of this epidemic. Her unspoken motto is powerful—one person can, indeed, make a difference. Whether describing her difficult childhood, reflecting on raising her two sons, discussing her evolution as an artist, or explaining her coping mechanisms for survival, My Name Is Mary is warm, caring, and inspirational—like Mary Fisher herself.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Wake up, Lien. Think for yourself! describes the origins and some of the history and the excesses of Christianity and Islam. It shows how mind-control enters into the formation of these religions, and it urges the reader to free himself or herself from the out-dated notions that may have been implanted in his mind by parents, teachers, and religious functionaries. It suggests the Eastern teaching of reincarnation as a possible substitute as that appears to be a more satisfying and logical belief system.

Download Free The Secret History of Lucifer (New Edition) PDF by Lynn Picknett Full Book and published by Hachette UK. This book was released on 2012-03-01 with total page 336 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: In her new account of an old religion, Lynn Picknett explains that Lucifer means 'the light bringer' and was a personification of the Morning Star, the planet Venus and its goddess. 'He' was originally 'she' -- a divine representation of love, light and human warmth. The early Christian Church appropriated the name Lucifer, and it became synonymous with darkness and the Devil. Yet many great thinkers have covertly followed the old Luciferan way, most famously Leonardo da Vinci, who encrypted the symbols of his heretical beliefs in his work, visible only to those who have the key.
