    greatly affects me and how I view the world. “You’re not a real Catholic if [....]”. This is a phrase I have heard many times since I have been at Saint Mary’s. Many of the books we have read have given different definitions of what religion is so, why can’t Catholics have different definitions of what Catholicism is?

Our definition of old varies from generation to generation, ethnicity to ethnicity, city to city, and even person to person. When it comes to defining old age and what makes a person old, it appears that our definitions change overtime as we age.

    clear-cut definition of congregational worship for music to be so abstractly removed from it a priori. If this definition is tested lexically against scripture, however, we find that it cannot stand, and the premise defeated. Whale believed that “worship is the only sufficient evidence of living religion” and Luther famously said habere deum est colere deum, or “to believe in God is to go down on your knees.” For such bold assertions to be true we need to be careful and specific with our…

    History is the story of human existence, therefore we can learn how to be better human beings than the human beings that have come before us. We can learn more about ourselves and what makes us human by analyzing historical figures. At the beginning of this semester I thought that I had some great answers for the question about why it is important to study world civilizations.

    Happiness and Success The definition of success is “The accomplishment of an aim or purpose.” Because we all have different aims and goals in life, success will be seen differently to every single person asked. Many people’s goal in life is to have money, these people will most likely see success as being rich. People whose goals are to win awards or trophies will most likely see success as winning an Oscar or a championship. Some people’s goals are to have power, these people will probably see…
