Tate Rodriguez Diagramming Validity and Soundness (23-25) Example 1: “There are many figures well-suited to serve as patron saints of the pope’s jubilee, including St. Faustina Kowalska, founder of the Divine Mercy devotion; St. Therese of Lisieux, the “Little Flower” for whom mercy was spiritually central; and Mother Teresa, an exemplar of mercy in action. 1.There are least four reasons why Padre Pio also belongs on that list.” 2.“One rock-solid spiritual conviction for Pope Francis is the belief that popular religion reveals the faith of the poor better than a whole bookshelf full of learned theological treatises.” “Francis can’t help but be impressed by the fact that the champions of devotion to Padre Pio have never been sophisticates, who tend to look upon his cult with scorn. It’s always been simple people – especially the sick, the poor, the imprisoned, and the abandoned – who’ve seen in Padre Pio an icon of mercy and compassion for their suffering, as well as a powerful intercessor for healing.” 3.“Francis has stressed that the aim of the jubilee year is not merely to foster abstract reflection on the spiritual virtue of mercy, but also to unleash concrete expressions of mercy in charity and service. Looking at the way the Padre Pio devotion has developed, Francis has to be impressed with how this link between devotion and service has always been front and center.” “The centerpiece is the Casa Sollievo della Sofferenza, or “House for the Relief of Suffering,” a massive hospital founded in San Giovanni Rotondo in 1956 in response to the personal desire of Padre Pio.” 4.“Pope Francis’ passion for confession is well-known” “That’s another point of contact with Padre Pio, who was likely the most indefatigable Catholic confessor of the 20th century.” Standard form: a. One rock-solid spiritual conviction for Pope Francis is the belief that popular religion reveals the faith of the poor better than a whole bookshelf full of learned theological treatises. Francis can’t help but be impressed by the fact that the champions of devotion to Padre Pio have never been sophisticates, who tend to look upon his cult with scorn. It’s always been simple people – especially the sick, the poor, the imprisoned, and the abandoned – who’ve seen in Padre Pio an icon of mercy and compassion for their suffering, as well as a powerful intercessor for healing.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
