Admittedly, this is an understandable misconception due to the profound amount of Catholic art dedicated to the blessed virgin. But thereвs one thing this article needs to make clear: CATHOLICS. DO. NOT. WORSHIP. MARY. Instead, Mary is honoured in our faith as the mother of our saviour. She is not worshipped as this is a respect reserved for God alone, as laid out in the (Exodus 20:3). Why do we even need Mary? In a similar way to Jesus being the one true mediator between God and humanity, Mary intercedes on the behalf of us to Jesus. One objection to this could be that since Jesus is the one true mediator for us, we donвt need the intercession of Mary, as we only need Jesus and can go directly to him when we pray. While it is true that we can go directly to Jesus during prayer,
Have you ever seen a wall with the paint peeling off? The blistering, curling paint, the nasty tangle of cracks, the flakes littering the floor - it isn't pretty, that's for sure. If you're dealing with paint peeling off one of your walls, you know exactly what I'm talking about. You can if you want - painting is more tedious than it looks. Or you can save some money and spend a few hours doing it yourself. I'm not gonna lie to you - painting is hard work. But it's also incredibly fulfilling and worth the effort.

For instance, if the wall wasn't properly cleaned before the paint was applied, if primer wasn't used, or if the wrong
Many of us love giving out candy to kids on Halloween, but have you ever wondered we do this in the first place? The is a fascinating one, to say the least. Let's just say that the trick-or-treating history didn't exactly kick off with people handing out Hershey's or Reese's willy-nilly to whomever dropped by their homes. The modern-day tradition of American stems from an ancient Irish tradition called Samhaim,. Celebrated during the final harvests of the year, the Celts marked the day as one of their most important festivals. Samhaim celebrated the link between seasonal and life cycles Б with elements of magic and mystery included (sound familiar? ). Where did trick-or-treating come from? Samhaim was a pagan festival, so it was replaced in the 8th century by Catholic traditions,
It s a play on Jay-Hova, or Jehovah, one of the Old Testament names of God. Jay-Z (born Shaun Carter) got the nickname back in 1993, when he borrowed some studio time and was recording some of his first tracks. The other people in the studio marveled to discover that Jay-Z was improvising all his lyrics, and decided that his ability was nothing short of miraculous. So they dubbed him J-Hova. Like Eric Clapton decades before him, Jay-Z resisted being anointed as the Creator. I ve never been comfortable being called God, Jay-Z has said. I shorten it to Hova. Which isn t that modest, actually, but if anybody s earned it, he has. As he puts it on his song Breathe Easy (Lyrical Exercise) : I m far from being God / But I work goddamn hard. (Excerpted from the 2006 Is Tiny Dancer Really Elton s
TheWorldCounts, 30 June, 2014 ExtinctionБ Mass extinction is a very rare event. The most well-known extinction is when the dinosaurs were wiped off the face of the earth, but prior to that there were other extinctions. In fact, before humans arrived on the planet, 99. 9% of all species that have existed have already become extinct. In those days, extinctions happen naturally over a long span of time. Climate change, changes in sea levels and currents, diseases, and the spread of invasive species are natural triggers which can cause the demise of some species. In our present time, itБs a different story. If youБve ever asked yourself, БWhy do species become extinct? Б you might not like the hard truth. But the fact is we humans are driving a large number of species to extinction. The
Why should voltmeter have high resistance? January 31, 2011, Why should voltmeter have high resistance? Voltmeter is an instrument that is used to measure the potential difference between two points in an electric circuit. The voltage in the circuit will be visible in the analog voltmeters which will move the needle through the scale according to the voltage in the circuit. The digital voltmeters will show the measurement of the voltage in numbers with the help of analog to digital converters. Generally Ammeter is connected in series to the circuit while voltmeters are connected in parallel to the circuit. Ammeter is the instrument that measures the current flowing in the circuit while voltmeter measures the potential difference. ...
The Three Gorges Dam, a project of great weight to Chinese nation, has been completed and so far begun to bring benefits to Chinese people in mainly four aspects: flood control, power generation, navigation and tourism. One of the major objectives of the dam is to control water levels due to frequent floods causing a historical problem around the Jinjiang River and area. The project can efficiently control the water from upper stream and reduce the flood and sand pouring into Dongting Lake during the flood season, thus the sediment accumulation rate of Dongting Lake can be postponed and the threat of flood to it can be relieved. The normal storage level can be reached to 574 feet and its flood control capacity is as large as 29 billion cubic yards which will protect the Jingjiang River
December 26 is not only a day for Santa Claus to catch his breath but a public holiday known as Boxing Day in the United Kingdom and other British Commonwealth countries such as Australia, Canada and New Zealand. In spite of its peculiar name, Boxing Day has nothing to do with fisticuffs, the trashing of empty boxes left over from Christmas or the return of unwanted presents to department stores. The term is of British origin, and the Oxford English Dictionary traces its earliest print attribution to 1833, four years before Charles Dickens referred to it in БThe Pickwick Papers. Б The exact roots of the holiday name are unknown, but there are two leading theories, both of which are connected to charity traditionally distributed to lower classes on the day after Christmas. One idea is that

Your body can only process a certain amount of food at each meal. Therefore, it may not be possible to avoid that ammonia smell during prolonged activities. The smell is common, for example, amongst marathon runners, who are engaging in continuous cardiovascular exercise for hours at a time. In that situation, it is advisable to consume sports drinks or other sources of energy during the activity to fuel your body (and especially your brain) and prevent your amino acids from being burned for energy. The next time you smell ammonia, don t worry. It doesn t mean that your muscle tissue being broken down, and it doesn t mean that you re doomed to stink for the rest of eternity. Consume a nutritious meal immediately after exercising - a balance of lean protein and whole, unprocessed
