  • Personal Narrative: My First Communion

    From the age of four to seventeen I attended a Catholic school. At the start of Pre-K I was introduced to Jesus Christ. Maybe I don’t fully remember the times I spent praying when I was four and in Pre-K but I’m positive from what I’ve seen throughout the years each little kid was taught a prayer at a young age. Though at that time I was young and introduced to my faith through prayer at even at a younger age I was welcomed into my Catholic faith. Getting baptized when I was just a baby was the…

  • What Is The Importance Of Gaining Access To St Stephen

    Gaining Access Part of the reason the group chose St Stephen was because there was easy access.

  • Saint Bartholomew's Massacre

    Whilst there may be some truth in the distinction: Protestants destroy property and Catholics kill, it is a gross over-simplification of the religious violence associated with the Early Modern era to characterise it in such a binary manner. At best, it is a sweeping generalisation based upon the assumption that Protestant property destruction is driven by their anti-iconic beliefs, who felt that they had a legitimate objection to the wrongful use of material objects during worship: something…

  • Religious Experience Essay

    For my other religious experience I had the privilege of attending a friend’s Catholic wedding. The church was everything I expected it to be with tall beautiful stained glass windows and sturdy wooden pews. Even though the church was in the middle of downtown Nashville, I felt as though I was in some peaceful little town in the middle of nowhere. The whole experience was more of a shock than I was expecting; I knew that mass would be different than attending my normal church, but I honestly had…

The reality of the situation is the contrasts exist only to highlight to comparisons. Between Ronald Cobb, the Christion pastor in Horton Kansas, and Benjamin Tremmel, the Catholic priest of the Good Intent Parish, there exist some of the most uncommon…
