The History Of The Church
a: The history of the church ~
b: a cosine curve with many ups and downs
What: "The history of the Church is like a cosine curve with many ups and downs. At the times when the Church hits its low points God raises up tremendous saints to bring the Church back to its real mission. It's almost as if in those times of darkness the light of Christ shines ever more brightly. I will not allow any scandal to destroy my faith. Those that do so are guilty of spiritual suicide. They are guilty, of cutting off their life with Christ by abandoning the source of life in the sacraments, especially the Eucharist."

METAMIA is a free database of analogy and metaphor. Anyone can contribute or search. The subject matter can be anything. Science is popular, but poetry is encouraged. The goal is to integrate our fluid muses with the stark literalism of a relational database. Metamia is like a girdle for your muses, a cognitive girdle.
