As Fritz Haber saw it, he was a German first and foremost, in particular, a Prussian. So when War broke out in the summer of 1914, Haber did what any good Prussian would do – the man devoted every waking minute to the War effort to ensure victory for the Fatherland.
This is reflected in the quote he is remembered most for saying:
“During Peace time a scientist belongs to the world, but during War time, he belongs to his country.”
– Fritz Haber
Many within his field could not have wholeheartedly disagreed more with Haber’s stance on Science’s role in times of War, such as his good friend Albert Einstein, who said on numerous occasions during both World Wars that his only allegiance was to being a Pacifist.
As the First World War raged more and more, so too did Haber’s zealotry for his country. Despite it being clearly obvious how much his patriotic drive was dividing him between long standing colleagues like Einstein and even his own spouse, Fritz Haber’s fervor for the Fatherland was undeterred.

Within the Pantheon of scientific geniuses born in the middle of the 19th century, only Fritz Haber is credited for an invention which many believe to be the 20th century’s greatest achievement of scientific innovation. An achievement which not only expanded our working knowledge of the Universe, it positively altered the course of humanity’s progress on this planet.
Conversely alongside J. Robert Oppenheimer who directed The Manhattan Project which created and utilized the world’s first nuclear weapons, Fritz Haber is one of the most vilified scientists of all time due to another invention of his making which elevated the horror of War to a level of incomprehensible terror the likes of which had not been experienced before in the history of Mankind.
Never was there such a man who gave and took so much from the world around him with his creations that brought both Life and Death stemming from the same foundational source – his fervent love of country.

The images both Christian and non-Christian alike have commonly associated most with the Mother of Christ throughout the 20th and into the 21st century are of a purely mystical nature, since Our Lady of Guadalupe and Our Lady of the Miraculous Medal are part of a long list of locations where a specific event has occurred that can best be described in layman’s terms as “supernatural”. Each location is said to have had a “Marian Apparition” take place there.
Marian Apparition – a supernatural event in which the Virgin Mary is believed to have appeared to one or more persons regardless of their religious faith.
According to Wikipedia, each apparition “is often named after the town where it is reported”, such as Our Lady of Lourdes, Our Lady of Fatima, , etc. and is said to “recur at the same site over an extended period of time” with either one or a small handful of people witnessing the apparition at the time of its original occurrence.

Throughout the Catholic Church’s history Mary has been a point of contention where some have said the woman who bore the mortal manifestation of Christ is inconsequential and still others have equivocated devotion towards the Blessed Mother to the worshipping of a pagan goddess.
The Blessed Mother may have begun life as a mortal being but her role in the Catholic Faith is to embody and sustain that mystical force known as the ancient feminine. This in turn elevates Mary’s status well beyond being merely a mortal woman who gave birth to the Messiah. As the force of the ancient feminine Mary serves as Catholicism’s fiercest defender of faith by being its most powerful form of protection against the forces of darkness and evil and Our Lady sustains the importance Catholicism still holds for humanity as the 21st century unfolds by her institution of the power of prayer.
