Order Discount Naprosyn Online

In keeping with the historical accuracy theme, order discount naprosyn online or lack thereof *, order discount naprosyn online 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, order discount naprosyn online 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, order discount naprosyn online writings and by media conglomerates at large. In many cases, order discount naprosyn online writings avoid and/or misrepresent less favorable elements of history which could reveal a more accurate spectrum of what actually occurred. Order discount naprosyn online 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, order discount naprosyn online along with the over lavishness of their lifestyle and surroundings, order discount naprosyn online 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, order discount naprosyn online never made such a statement. Additionally, order discount naprosyn online what seems more evident is she attempted to live her life as an individual of virtue and compassion, order discount naprosyn online and was caught in the unfortunate position of  assuming massive political power along with her husband Louis XVI.  Perhaps that is a vast generalization, order discount naprosyn online 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, order discount naprosyn online and centuries have passed. She also happened to be, order discount naprosyn online along with her husband, order discount naprosyn online a devout Catholic. Perhaps that is a part of the reason for the historical scapegoating and intentional mischaracterization of Antoinette and Louis XVI. Order discount naprosyn online I am not Catholic, order discount naprosyn online but I have come to better understand the underlying centuries old hostility/competition/political underpinnings between the Catholic Church and the Judaic Rabbinical organizations, order discount naprosyn online 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, order discount naprosyn online and am equally pleased there are those who care enough about historical accuracy to attempt to set the record straight. Order discount naprosyn online Below I've included a piece from Elena Maria Vidal's website, order discount naprosyn online Tea at Trianon.  "In 1844, order discount naprosyn online 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. Order discount naprosyn online We have lived in those times. Order discount naprosyn online We have talked with some of her friends and some of her enemies; we have read, order discount naprosyn online certainly not all, order discount naprosyn online but hundreds of the libels written against her; and we have, order discount naprosyn online in short, order discount naprosyn online examined her life with-- if we may be allowed to say so of ourselves-- something of the accuracy of contemporaries, order discount naprosyn online the diligence of inquirers, order discount naprosyn online and the impartiality of historians, order discount naprosyn online all combined; and we feel it our duty to declare, order discount naprosyn online in as a solemn a manner as literature admits of, order discount naprosyn online our well-matured opinion that every reproach against the morals of the queen was a gross calumny-- that she was, order discount naprosyn online as we have said, order discount naprosyn online 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, order discount naprosyn online neither was she a saint; she was an upright, order discount naprosyn online charming woman, order discount naprosyn online a little frivolous, order discount naprosyn online somewhat impulsive, order discount naprosyn online but always pure; she was a queen, order discount naprosyn online at times ardent in her fancies for her favourites and thoughtless in her policy, order discount naprosyn online but proud and full of energy; a thorough woman in her winsome ways and tenderness of heart, order discount naprosyn online until she became a martyr. Order discount naprosyn online (The Life of Marie-Antoinette by M. Order discount naprosyn online de la Rocheterie, order discount naprosyn online 1893)
Marie-Antoinette spent the first fourteen years of her life in Austria, order discount naprosyn online worshiping in Rococo churches and listening to the music of Haydn and the Italian composers. Order discount naprosyn online Architecture and music in that time and place celebrated the glory of God in the beauty of His creation. Order discount naprosyn online As Queen, order discount naprosyn online her desire to promote beauty around her, order discount naprosyn online especially in the lives of those whom she loved, order discount naprosyn online was an outgrowth of the culture in which she was raised. Order discount naprosyn online She loved theater, order discount naprosyn online acting, order discount naprosyn online opera, order discount naprosyn online ballet, order discount naprosyn online painting, order discount naprosyn online gardens and everything that enhanced the loveliness of the natural order. Order discount naprosyn online Hers was a piety that was loving, order discount naprosyn online gentle and courteous, order discount naprosyn online but real and unflinching nevertheless. Order discount naprosyn online Antoinette's approach to faith was joyful and non-judgmental, order discount naprosyn online free from the rigorist approach of Jansenism that so tainted a great deal of French piety in the years preceding the Revolution. Order discount naprosyn online Nevertheless, order discount naprosyn online even as a young bride, order discount naprosyn online 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. Order discount naprosyn online It is known that the young Archduchess Antonia was not an outstandingly pious child, order discount naprosyn online but she was carefully taught her faith. Order discount naprosyn online Her mother, order discount naprosyn online Empress Maria Teresa of Austria was a deeply observant Roman Catholic, order discount naprosyn online who prayed novenas with her children and took them on pilgrimages. Order discount naprosyn online She instilled in her daughters the importance of being faithful wives and staying at their husbands' sides, order discount naprosyn online no matter what. The Empress also taught young Antoinette how to play cards before sending her to France, order discount naprosyn online knowing that at the French court just like the Austrian court, order discount naprosyn online gambling was rife and if a princess did not know the ropes she would lose all her money. Order discount naprosyn online 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, order discount naprosyn online although many say that Antoinette's youth and naïveté made the task difficult. Order discount naprosyn online Unfortunately, order discount naprosyn online the teenage Antoinette became addicted to gambling, order discount naprosyn online 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. Order discount naprosyn online Whatever mistakes she made, order discount naprosyn online she later paid for, order discount naprosyn online bitterly. Order discount naprosyn online Her faith was practical and manifested itself in her extensive charities, order discount naprosyn online including a home for unwed mothers. Order discount naprosyn online While her generosity to the poor is famous, order discount naprosyn online it is not as widely known that she was a patroness of the Carmelite order, order discount naprosyn online and visited the monastery where her husband's aunt was a nun, order discount naprosyn online once a year. Order discount naprosyn online She made many personal sacrifices on behalf of the poor and encouraged her children to do so. Order discount naprosyn online She assisted at daily Mass, order discount naprosyn online confessing and receiving Holy Communion on a regular basis, order discount naprosyn onlineand lived, order discount naprosyn online to all appearances, order discount naprosyn online as a Roman Catholic in good standing. After the death of her mother and loss of two of her children in the 1780's, order discount naprosyn online Antoinette became more noticeably devout, order discount naprosyn online growing closer to her pious sister-in-law, order discount naprosyn online Madame Elisabeth of France. Order discount naprosyn online While under house arrest at the Tuileries palace, order discount naprosyn online the two connived at getting non-juring priests, order discount naprosyn online (i.e., order discount naprosyn online those who were faithful to the Pope), order discount naprosyn online into the chateau for secret Masses and confessions. Order discount naprosyn online It is supposedly the time when a few historians claim she had a romantic rendez-vous with Count Axel von Fersen. Order discount naprosyn online I think not. Order discount naprosyn online The atmosphere at the Tuileries was more like the catacombs than Dangerous Liaisons. Before her death, order discount naprosyn online when her children had been taken from her, order discount naprosyn online her little son abused and her husband slain, order discount naprosyn online the queen again sought prayer, order discount naprosyn online the sacraments of the Church, order discount naprosyn online and affirmed in writing her loyalty to the "Catholic, order discount naprosyn online Roman and Apostolic religion." The priest who received her last confession in the Conciergerie later publicly affirmed these facts.
