Buy Lanoxin Cod

In keeping with the historical accuracy theme, buy lanoxin cod or lack thereof *, buy lanoxin cod I felt this worthy of a repost.... She never said it. http://18thcenturyblog.com/images/uploads/138_medium.jpg The more I learn of history in general, buy lanoxin cod the easier it seems to question what is taught and published in books.  It's not too difficult to find historical records altered/inaccurately portrayed in educational books, buy lanoxin cod writings and by media conglomerates at large. In many cases, buy lanoxin cod writings avoid and/or misrepresent less favorable elements of history which could reveal a more accurate spectrum of what actually occurred. Buy lanoxin cod I remember my mother telling me the famous story of Marie Antoinette replying "let them eat cake" when she was asked what was to be fed to the peasants who were starving.  As more research is uncovered (and rediscovered) regarding Antoinette and her husband Louis XVI with regards to ther dismissive and careless attitudes towards the ordinary citizens of France, buy lanoxin cod along with the over lavishness of their lifestyle and surroundings, buy lanoxin cod the less such stories and long standing myths seem able to hold weight amidst century old testimonies of individuals which contradict such stories.   I have come to now understand that Antoinette in all likelihood, buy lanoxin cod never made such a statement. Additionally, buy lanoxin cod what seems more evident is she attempted to live her life as an individual of virtue and compassion, buy lanoxin cod and was caught in the unfortunate position of  assuming massive political power along with her husband Louis XVI.  Perhaps that is a vast generalization, buy lanoxin cod and the truth lies somewhere more in the historic 'middle'.    I think that is the difficulty  in claiming anything as historical "fact" especially  with the number of years, buy lanoxin cod and centuries have passed. She also happened to be, buy lanoxin cod along with her husband, buy lanoxin cod a devout Catholic. Perhaps that is a part of the reason for the historical scapegoating and intentional mischaracterization of Antoinette and Louis XVI. Buy lanoxin cod I am not Catholic, buy lanoxin cod but I have come to better understand the underlying centuries old hostility/competition/political underpinnings between the Catholic Church and the Judaic Rabbinical organizations, buy lanoxin cod among others groups. I find it interesting that such continued negative and untrue stories continue to be sold as fact with regards to Antoinette's legacy, buy lanoxin cod and am equally pleased there are those who care enough about historical accuracy to attempt to set the record straight. Buy lanoxin cod Below I've included a piece from Elena Maria Vidal's website, buy lanoxin cod Tea at Trianon.  "In 1844, buy lanoxin cod the historian John Wilson Croker expressed on behalf of Antoinette's character:

We have followed the history of Marie Antoinette with the greatest diligence and scrupulosity. Buy lanoxin cod We have lived in those times. Buy lanoxin cod We have talked with some of her friends and some of her enemies; we have read, buy lanoxin cod certainly not all, buy lanoxin cod but hundreds of the libels written against her; and we have, buy lanoxin cod in short, buy lanoxin cod examined her life with-- if we may be allowed to say so of ourselves-- something of the accuracy of contemporaries, buy lanoxin cod the diligence of inquirers, buy lanoxin cod and the impartiality of historians, buy lanoxin cod all combined; and we feel it our duty to declare, buy lanoxin cod in as a solemn a manner as literature admits of, buy lanoxin cod our well-matured opinion that every reproach against the morals of the queen was a gross calumny-- that she was, buy lanoxin cod as we have said, buy lanoxin cod one of the purest of human beings.

Marie-Antoinette's Journey of Faith

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  I have always felt that Maxime de la Rocheterie's description of Marie-Antoinette is one of the best:
She was not a guilty woman, buy lanoxin cod neither was she a saint; she was an upright, buy lanoxin cod charming woman, buy lanoxin cod a little frivolous, buy lanoxin cod somewhat impulsive, buy lanoxin cod but always pure; she was a queen, buy lanoxin cod at times ardent in her fancies for her favourites and thoughtless in her policy, buy lanoxin cod but proud and full of energy; a thorough woman in her winsome ways and tenderness of heart, buy lanoxin cod until she became a martyr. Buy lanoxin cod (The Life of Marie-Antoinette by M. Buy lanoxin cod de la Rocheterie, buy lanoxin cod 1893)
Marie-Antoinette spent the first fourteen years of her life in Austria, buy lanoxin cod worshiping in Rococo churches and listening to the music of Haydn and the Italian composers. Buy lanoxin cod Architecture and music in that time and place celebrated the glory of God in the beauty of His creation. Buy lanoxin cod As Queen, buy lanoxin cod her desire to promote beauty around her, buy lanoxin cod especially in the lives of those whom she loved, buy lanoxin cod was an outgrowth of the culture in which she was raised. Buy lanoxin cod She loved theater, buy lanoxin cod acting, buy lanoxin cod opera, buy lanoxin cod ballet, buy lanoxin cod painting, buy lanoxin cod gardens and everything that enhanced the loveliness of the natural order. Buy lanoxin cod Hers was a piety that was loving, buy lanoxin cod gentle and courteous, buy lanoxin cod but real and unflinching nevertheless. Buy lanoxin cod Antoinette's approach to faith was joyful and non-judgmental, buy lanoxin cod free from the rigorist approach of Jansenism that so tainted a great deal of French piety in the years preceding the Revolution. Buy lanoxin cod Nevertheless, buy lanoxin cod even as a young bride, buy lanoxin cod she had the moral courage to defy the king in regard to Madame du Barry. Antoinette was the fifteenth child in a family of sixteen. Buy lanoxin cod It is known that the young Archduchess Antonia was not an outstandingly pious child, buy lanoxin cod but she was carefully taught her faith. Buy lanoxin cod Her mother, buy lanoxin cod Empress Maria Teresa of Austria was a deeply observant Roman Catholic, buy lanoxin cod who prayed novenas with her children and took them on pilgrimages. Buy lanoxin cod She instilled in her daughters the importance of being faithful wives and staying at their husbands' sides, buy lanoxin cod no matter what. The Empress also taught young Antoinette how to play cards before sending her to France, buy lanoxin cod knowing that at the French court just like the Austrian court, buy lanoxin cod gambling was rife and if a princess did not know the ropes she would lose all her money. Buy lanoxin cod Antoinette's mother's devotion to God did not blind her to the realities of life as a royal for which she tried to prepare her daughter, buy lanoxin cod although many say that Antoinette's youth and naïveté made the task difficult. Buy lanoxin cod Unfortunately, buy lanoxin cod the teenage Antoinette became addicted to gambling, buy lanoxin cod a passion that she later overcame with her husband's help. When I look back at my own youth I cannot be too hard on the imprudences of Antoinette as a girl. Buy lanoxin cod Whatever mistakes she made, buy lanoxin cod she later paid for, buy lanoxin cod bitterly. Buy lanoxin cod Her faith was practical and manifested itself in her extensive charities, buy lanoxin cod including a home for unwed mothers. Buy lanoxin cod While her generosity to the poor is famous, buy lanoxin cod it is not as widely known that she was a patroness of the Carmelite order, buy lanoxin cod and visited the monastery where her husband's aunt was a nun, buy lanoxin cod once a year. Buy lanoxin cod She made many personal sacrifices on behalf of the poor and encouraged her children to do so. Buy lanoxin cod She assisted at daily Mass, buy lanoxin cod confessing and receiving Holy Communion on a regular basis, buy lanoxin codand lived, buy lanoxin cod to all appearances, buy lanoxin cod as a Roman Catholic in good standing. After the death of her mother and loss of two of her children in the 1780's, buy lanoxin cod Antoinette became more noticeably devout, buy lanoxin cod growing closer to her pious sister-in-law, buy lanoxin cod Madame Elisabeth of France. Buy lanoxin cod While under house arrest at the Tuileries palace, buy lanoxin cod the two connived at getting non-juring priests, buy lanoxin cod (i.e., buy lanoxin cod those who were faithful to the Pope), buy lanoxin cod into the chateau for secret Masses and confessions. Buy lanoxin cod It is supposedly the time when a few historians claim she had a romantic rendez-vous with Count Axel von Fersen. Buy lanoxin cod I think not. Buy lanoxin cod The atmosphere at the Tuileries was more like the catacombs than Dangerous Liaisons. Before her death, buy lanoxin cod when her children had been taken from her, buy lanoxin cod her little son abused and her husband slain, buy lanoxin cod the queen again sought prayer, buy lanoxin cod the sacraments of the Church, buy lanoxin cod and affirmed in writing her loyalty to the "Catholic, buy lanoxin cod Roman and Apostolic religion." The priest who received her last confession in the Conciergerie later publicly affirmed these facts.
