by a mannequin of Jesus holding a lamb. Nearby was an American flag. I stepped up, she put "Amazing Grace" on a cassette recorder she had, I rendered a hand salute, held it as Holy Ghost came on me, and tears began to pour down my cheeks. The crowd stood silent, as words of Amazing Grace rang throughout area. After it was over, I dropped my salute, went to parade rest, and Lord spoke to me and said, "Mission Accomplished", You can go back home, now." I wrote this story in my book, My Walk with Lord, which by way, has slowly spread like ripples from a rock thrown in a lake. So, to answer your question, Yes, Lord has used me in all kinds of ways.

By placing these diviners in fourth bolgia, Dante establishes their falsity, and his disagreement on this score with his classical predecessors.

The Latin poem relates that prophetess bears a child, Ocnus, who founds city and gives it his mother's name: «qui muros matrisque dedit tibi, Mantua, nomen» («who gave you walls and name of his mother, O Mantua» [Aen. X, 200]). The Comedy, on other hand, relates that Manto, «la vergine cruda» (82), settled and died in a spot later chosen by men from surrounding regions as suitable for a city: «Fer la città sovra quell' ossa morte» (91). Most interesting about Vergil's speech is his closing injunction to pilgrim to disregard all other accounts of Mantova's founding; since only true story is one he has just heard, pilgrim must «let no lie defraud truth», i.e. he must reject all other accounts as false (97-99):” (1)
