In 1917, three shepherd children living just outside Fatima, Portugal have visions of a lovely lady in a cloud. The anticlerical government wishes to squelch the Church; reports of religious experiences are cause for serious concern. Yet the children stand by their story, and the message of peace and hope the Lady brings. In the last vision, attended by thousands of people, the Lady proves her reality with a spectacular miracle that is seen by everyone present. Based on actual events at Fatima in the summer of 1917.

In the same way that you can sculpt clay or wood, vignettes let you shape light and shadows. They can add depth, atmosphere, mystery, or wonder to your digital images. A vignette mimics subtle effects of human vision reproducing fall- offs in color perception and brightness around the periphery of our field of view. Technically a vignette is the actual fall-off in brightness across an image towards the edge. The darker less saturated borders drive the viewers attention back toward the focal point.

Today, we accept that we live on a planet circling the sun, that our sun is just one of billions of stars in the galaxy we call the Milky Way, and that our galaxy is but one of billions born out of the big bang. Yet as recently as the early twentieth century, the general public and even astronomers had vague and confused notions about what lay beyond the visible stars.

Nationalism and the Moral Psychology of Community

Nationalism and the Moral Psychology of Community by Bernard Yack
English | 2012 | ISBN: 0226944670 , 0226944662 | 344 pages | PDF | 1,8 MB

Nationalism is one of modern history's great surprises. How is it that the nation, a relatively old form of community, has risen to such prominence in an era so strongly identified with the individual? Bernard Yack argues that it is the inadequacy of our understanding of community - and especially the moral psychology that animates it - that has made this question so difficult to answer.

The Environmental Vision of Thomas Merton (Culture of the Land) (repost)

Monica Weis, "The Environmental Vision of Thomas Merton (Culture of the Land)"
English | ISBN 10: 0813130042 | 2011 | PDF | 216 pages | 2 MB

Nature was always vital in Thomas Merton's life, from the long hours he spent as a child watching his father paint landscapes in the fresh air, to his final years of solitude in the hermitage at Our Lady of Gethsemani, where he contemplated and wrote about the beauty of his surroundings. Throughout his life, Merton's study of the natural world shaped his spirituality in profound ways, and he was one of the first writers to raise concern about ecological issues that have become critical in recent years.
