In the words of this beautiful canticle, Saint Francis of Assisi reminds us that our common home is like a sister with whom we share our life and a beautiful mother who opens her arms to embrace us. This sister now cries out to us because of the harm we have inflicted on her by our irresponsible use and abuse of the goods with which God has endowed her. We have come to see ourselves as her lords and masters, entitled to plunder her at will. The violence present in our hearts, wounded by sin, is also reflected in the symptoms of sickness evident in the soil, in the water, in the air and in all forms of life.

He had been exiled from his homeland for killing his relatives, either his cousins or his paternal uncles. In any case, Tydeus was exiled, and he found refuge at Argoswhere the king, Adrastusoffered him hospitality, even giving him his daughter, Deipyle, to be his wife.
The two were happily married and had two children together - a daughter, Comaethoand a son, Diomedes. Sometime later, Polynicesa banished prince of Thebesarrived in Argos; he approached Adrastus and pleaded his case to the king, as he requested his aid to restore him to his original homeland.
Adrastos promised to do so and set out to gather an expeditionary force with which to march against Thebes. This force was made up of seven individual champions, each assigned to lead an assault on one of the seven gates of the city; Tydeus, Polynices and Adrastus were among them.
The expedition proved to be complete disaster, however, as all seven of the Argive champions were killed in the ensuing battle, except for Adrastus, who escaped thanks to his horse Arionwho was the fastest of all of his brethren. Diomedes' father, Tydeus, was among those who had been slain.
However, she withdrew the intended privilege in apparent disgust when Tydeus gobbled down the brains of the hated enemy who had wounded him.
According to some, Diomedes was four years old when his father was killed. At the funeral of their fathers, the sons of the seven fallen champions AegialeusAlcmaeonAmphilocusDiomedes, Euryalus, Promachus, Sthenelus, and Thersander met and vowed to vanquish Thebes in order to avenge their fathers.
They were called "the Epigoni " because they were born "after everything has happened". Ten years later, the Epigoni set out to launch another expedition against Thebes, appointing Alcmaeon as their commander-in-chief.
They strengthened their initial forces with contingents from Messenia, Arcadia, Corinth, and Megara. This army, however, was still small compared to that of Thebes. The war of the Epigoni is remembered as the most important expedition in Greek mythology prior to the Trojan War.
It was a favorite topic for epics, but, unfortunately, all of these epics are now lost. The main battle took place at Glisas where Prince Aegialeus son of Adrastus and heir to the throne was slain by King Laodamas, who was in turn killed by Alcmaeon.
With their king dead, the Thebans, believing this to be the end for them, sought counsel from the seer Tiresiaswho urged them to flee the city.
They did so, and, faced with no opposition, the Epigoni entered the city, plundering its treasures and tearing down its great walls. Having achieved their objective, the Epigoni returned home, but not before they installed Thersanderson of the fallen prince Polynices the instigator of the first Theban expeditionas the city's new ruler.
As Diomedes and the Argive forces travelled home, an elderly King Adrastus died of grief upon learning that his son Aegialeus had perished in the battle; as such, Diomedes was left as the last of Adrastus' male descendants.
That being so, upon returning home to Argos, Diomedes ascended to the throne. In order to secure his grasp on the throne, Diomedes married Aegialeus' daughter, Princess Aegialia.
According to some, Diomedes ruled Argos for more than five years and brought much wealth and stability to the city during his time. He was a skilled politician and was greatly respected by other rulers.
Diomedes attacked and ceded the kingdom, slaying all the traitors except Thersites, Onchestus who escaped to Peloponnesus and Agrius who killed himself restoring his grandfather to the throne. Later, Oeneus passed the kingdom to his son-in-law, Andraemon, and headed to Argos to meet Diomedes.
He was assassinated on the way in Arcadia by Thersites and Onchestus.
Unable to find the murderers, Diomedes founded a mythical city called "Oenoe" at the place where his grandfather was buried to honour his death. · Welcome!caninariojana.com 1, Likes, 15 Comments - Princeton University (@princeton_university) on Instagram: “#TellUsTigers: "I started writing songs for my daughter when I was pregnant, but I didn't know they ”caninariojana.com The Woman Speaks to the Man Who Has Employed Her Son.
