St. Vincent de Paul church

Published by at 11:42 pm under Civil war

Most of the churches, mosques and other buildings damaged during Lebanon’s 15 year civil war have been repaired and given a new lease on life. But while it’s great that the Lebanese are moving forward (most of the time) from that terrible period, perhaps some of the evidence of the awful destruction, religious intolerance and tragic waste should be preserved as a reminder of how bad things got.

For now, there’s still ample evidence of Lebanon’s history of conflict, such as the St. Vincent de Paul church in downtown Beirut, pictured here. I don’t know the history of this church, except that it’s perhaps the closest to the old Green Line and is one of the few unrestored places of worship in downtown (the other is the Maghen-Abraham synagogue, which is a similar shell of a building).

    Doesn’t take long for entropy to accelerate as I know only too well when I go down to weed the garden though I have to admit Vincentia is not consecrated land. Wonder what will become of these old buildings and whether in fact it is worthwhile restoring them.

    For girls with moderately sized body can accentuate their body shape with a
    dress that has a good neckline. The classic man’s suit has barely changed for over a hundred years.
    Effectively, I’ve discovered a way to get gorgeous wedding gowns and even designer wedding
    gowns for a fraction of the original price.

    He will sometimes guide you with extracting a
    unwanted food item like fatty, oily in addition to carbohydrates.
    You finally screw up your courage – even if the news is bad, it’s best to know the truth,
    you tell yourself – and then do the test. HCG diet materials stress the importance of sticking to this diet.

    However, sometimes we need to do something a little more adventurous,
    or perhaps a little more pointedly self-serving. Better and
    quicker results are more achievable even with difficult noses (due to severe trauma or in asymmetrical
    faces). By changing the size & shape of the nose, this cosmetic nose can positively
    influence the balance of facial features.

    American Journal of Physiology-Regulatory, Integrative and
    Comparative Physiology recently published a report that connects hypertension and obesity.
    And likewise, simply eating Muscle Builder Foods And doing Bodybuilding
    Workouts won’t add inches to your chest, arms, and shoulders, if you aren’t regularly pumping iron. Oz does not endorse the
    diet and believes that it is not effective for long
    term weight loss, but he does believe that some times the experience of real
    people has not caught up with science for documentation.
