APPENDIX V: Turkish quotes about the Armenian genocide

Aida Alayarian Karnac Books ePub

Talat Pasha, June 1915, in a conversation with Dr Mordtmann of the German Embassy:

Turkey is taking advantage of the war in order to thoroughly liquidate (grundlich aufzaumen) its internal foes, i.e., the indigenous Christians, without being thereby disturbed by foreign intervention.

After the German Ambassador persistently brought up the Armenian question in 1918, Talat said, “with a smile”,

What on earth do you want? The question is settled. There are no more Armenians.

Cemal Pasha, 1915, upon seeing the deportations in Mamure, said to a German officer:

I am ashamed of my nation (Ich schame mich fur meine Nation).

The Minister of the Interior of Turkey publicly declared on 15 March that on the basis of computations undertaken by Ministry Experts

800,000 Armenian deportees were actually killed … by holding the guilty accountable the government is intent on cleansing the bloody past.

Enver Pasha, one of the triumvirate rulers, publicly declared on 19 May 1916,

The Ottoman Empire should be cleaned up of the Armenians and the Lebanese. We have destroyed the former by the sword, we shall destroy the latter through starvation.

What are sacramentals?

Sacramentals are “sacred signs which bear a resemblance to the sacraments. They signify effects, particularly of a spiritual nature, which are obtained through the intercession of the Church.” They can dispose us to receive the chief effects of the sacraments, and to make holy various occasions in life. (1667–1668)

Where does the name “sacramental” come from?

The sacramentals are so named because many of them are used in the celebration of the sacraments, and they, too, like the sacraments, are external signs through which blessings are received from God.

How does a sacramental obtain blessings from God?

A sacramental obtains blessings from God through the Paschal Mystery of Christ, by the prayers that the Church offers for those using the sacramental, and because of the devotion that the object, action, or word inspires. (1670)

Which blessings are obtained through sacramentals?

Through sacramentals we can obtain God’s graces and blessings, the forgiveness of venial sins, spiritual strength and comfort, and sometimes health and other material blessings, if this is according to God’s will.

Chapter 21: Expand Your Influence—For Good

Sam Horn Berrett-Koehler Publishers ePub

I’ve learned that you shouldn’t go through life with a catcher’s mitt on both hands; you need to be able to throw something back.


Brené Brown is definitely throwing something back. Just a few years ago, she was one of 1,276,700 college professors in the United States. Now, Brené is positively influencing millions with her books, Oprah Super Soul Sunday interviews and her Power of Vulnerability TED talk, which is one of their top ten downloaded videos35 … deservedly so.

I first met Brené at Goddard Space Center’s Leadership Colloquium. Gail Williams, the organizer of this series, is generous in asking previous speakers to their special events. When she invited me to attend Brené’s program, I RSVP’d an instant yes.

The auditorium was packed. In the first few minutes, Brené set up her shift from a self-described geek to a whole-hearted mom, shocked to find herself forever fretting about her kids. She said, “I never used to be a worrier, but once I became a parent, I would stand in my kids’ room at night, watch them sleep, and weep. I knew this was illogical. They were perfectly healthy, yet I was perfectly miserable. This made no sense.”

Fortune, Fate, and Providential Pedagogy in William Tyndale’s Obedience of a Christian Man

Robert C. Saler

Therefore let us accustom ourselves to patience and calmly bear even lashes and blows—children from their parents, subjects from the magistrate, and pupils from the teacher. For if we allow ourselves to be disciplined, obedience is pleasing to God.

—Martin Luther, Lectures on Genesis 16

1. Introduction

Amid the myriad theological issues that became sites of impassioned contention during the English Reformation, a recurring theme involves the complex relationship between fortune and the providential guidance of the God of Christian faith.1 Even a superficial survey of the history of Christian thought will quickly disclose the fact that theologians and church leaders have continually felt the need to rearticulate theologies of history during those junctures where institutions, communal formations, and social structures that were previously conceived as immune to the vicissitudes of temporality are suddenly revealed to be historically conditioned (and thus, by implication, fallible).2 The Reformation is a particularly fruitful time to examine this trend because, in the long view, the content of any one of the period’s various theological/political disputes is perhaps less decisive than the fact that the cumulative effect of these debates was to inject a substantial dose of mutability into virtually every symbolic register formative for English culture, particularly those of the church and the government. It is not surprising that such a crisis of visible human achievements provided the occasion for a thoroughgoing reassessment of the relationship between temporal experience and the workings of a God whose providential guidance was increasingly suspected of being inscrutable.
