A friar, who goes about seeking contributions, promises prayers and possible salvation in exchange  for anything his parishioners will give. Once back at the convent, the friar promptly forgets to make  the promised prayers. One day, the friar goes to the home of old Thomas, a rich but uneducated old  man who has been ill for a long time. The friar assures Thomas that he and his brother friars have  been praying for him. When Thomas' wife enters the house, the friar kisses and fondles her. She requests that he preach  to Thomas about anger because Thomas is so unpleasant. Before leaving, the wife reminds the Friar  that her baby died recently. The friar pretends to know this because he and the other friars have  seen the child being carried upward, and they have prayed and fasted. He gives the wife a long  sermon on the virtues of fasting and sins of gluttony.

    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.
