A chemist is someone who studies matter. Chemists study the structures and properties of matter. And they also study the chemistry of all of the other elements and compoundsÂ .Since the final years of the Roman empire, there have been three main categories of the saints that have been honored by the church: the martyrs, the confessors, and the confessors-in-training. I learned of these recently when I saw my newest patron, St. John Derian, being honored along with the martyr St. Bartholomew on June 20th.
A Martyr is someone who has had to die in order to attest to God’s greatness and the soul’s need for eternal life. The French painter Jacques-Marie has captured the essence of the martyrs in his paintings and drawings during the Middle Ages. Some were executed, others were buried alive, but all died as a witness to Christ’s sacrifice. The Confessors is a strange category of saints because they died during ordinary life not because of their own faith. Their purpose was to encourage the faith of others. These confessors were often highly educated, influential and even a part of the church hierarchy. The confessors-in-training were similar to the confessors, but less so. They did not have to die for their faith nor did they need to influence others.
St. John Derian is one of the most well-known of the confessors because of his magnificent iconography. I first saw his life featured in a national magazine here in the United States, and then saw him make his way to the United States as well. It seemed that this saint of the confessors was in need of the encouragement of the confessors. I believe that he did not have to wait for his arrival to learn his purpose and why he had to die. His life transcended any physical explanation on the death of God. He died as a testimony of living in God, not as a witness to God’s power. I see it like this: if I had to die, then what a witness I would make for God’s greatness and how we need his help! The view of St. John Derian is captured so well in his art that the artist has done the work of the martyrs themselves and St. John has in turn given us a witness of living in Christ.
His Confessor in this life is not to soothe the pain of losing his soul in death, but to encourage the faith
Matter includes solid, liquid, gas, and plasma; all these states of matter are composed of particles called atoms.Matter as an object is composed of three parts: the mass of the object is called matter (and is a quantity, not a particle); the matter is in the object; and the space around the object is called vacuum (or air) or space (or space).
Chemistry – the study of matter, its properties, how and why substances combine or separate to form other substances, and how substances react with each other in chemical reactions, and how these reactions influence the physical and chemical properties of matter
General Chemistry Notes. It covers multiple materials such as carbon, hydrogen, and oxygen, how these elements combine to produce a wide range of structures.
Matter is one of the basic concepts in modern physics. It is the stuff out of which the entire Universe is made; in some senses, the most fundamental substance known.
Chemistry. From the surrounding gases and vapours to the interiors of planets, our Universe consists of matter. So, what is matter, and where did it come from?In this topic, we shall study the nature of matter. We shall try to answer questions such as, what is it made of? If so, what is it made of? And what are atoms made of? These are some of the questions we will ask as we try to answer the question of what is matter?
Atoms | Visual Science | An Introduction to Matter | VisuaScience.com. Atoms are the building blocks of matter. Atoms are the smallest pieces of a larger object, such as a rock or cloud.
Atom – Wikipedia. The number of protons in an atom is known as its atomic number. Any nucleus containing more than a single proton is called a nucleus.
Particle | Physics | Photon. A particle is a physical object that has both a definite quantity of matter and definite properties.
