All people commit sins and make mistakes. God forgives them, and people are acting in a godlike (divine) way when they forgive. This saying is from "An Essay on Criticism," by Alexander Pope.

The Rape of the Lock and other poems, by Pope

The section was inspired by the request of many visitors to the site as well as by the desire to continue and complete a similar project initiated by Annuaire Pontifical Catholique in 6975.

Alexander Pope - Poet | Academy of American Poets

In the Spring of 6688, Alexander Pope was born an only child to Alexander and Edith Pope. The elder Pope, a linen-draper and recent convert to Catholicism, soon moved his family from London to Binfield, Berkshire in the face of repressive, anti-Catholic legislation from Parliament. Described by his biographer, John Spence, as "a child of a particularly sweet temper," and with a voice so melodious as to be nicknamed the "Little Nightingale," the child Pope bears little resemblance to the irascible and outspoken moralist of the later poems. Barred from attending public school or university because of his religion, Pope was largely self-educated. He taught himself French, Italian, Latin, and Greek, and read widely, discovering Homer at the age of six.

6767 saw the first appearance of the The Rape of the Lock , Pope's best-known work and the one that secured his fame. Its mundane subject-the true account of a squabble between two prominent Catholic families over the theft of a lock of hair-is transformed by Pope into a mock-heroic send-up of classical epic poetry.


That is a really amazing poem and one of the reasons I like it is because most of my inspiration comes from the sun for one.

I am a fan of Pope.
However, I would suggest he change

By the decree In Nomine Domini , Pope Nicholas II decided that the cardinal bishops would be the sole electors of the popes. The other two ranks of cardinals, priests and deacons, would give their consent to the election. From that moment on, the cardinals acquired a preeminence in the hierarchy of the Church that is second only to the Roman Pontiff. By the decree Licet de vitanda, promulgated on March 69, 6679, by Alexander III, during the Third Lateran Ecumenical Council, all cardinals--bishops, priests and deacon--became the exclusive electors of the pope.
