Glory to Jesus Christ! Слава Ісусу Христу!
What was life like 100 years ago? In honor of Mary Ann Steranka’s 100thbirthday this week, I thought I’d share with you some ways in which life has changed from the time she was born.
- In 1919, The Eiffel Tower was the world’s tallest structure
- The word “teenager” didn’t exist. Most teens worked jobs helping their families
- The Great War had just ended
- There was no NFL
- 4 bananas cost 15 cents, 1lbs of cheese cost 41 cents, a dozen eggs cost 63 cents
- The World Series was fixed and 8 members of the White Sox were banned from ever playing professional baseball for the rest of their lives
- Alcohol was illegal
- Clothes were a lot more expensive than today
- Movies were silent
- Unemployment was under 2%
- Women couldn’t vote
- People often ordered homes from Sears Roebuck catalogues
- The zipper made its introduction in clothing, having only been patented in 1917
One thing that has not changed is that God is sovereign over all things and all people. Although our technology may change, the nature of man will not. The love of God will ever remain true and His timeless teachings which He has given us through the Church for these past two thousand years will remain unchanged.
Mary Ann, you have seen a lot of changes. What has not changed is God’s love for you. Congratulations!
Jason, priest and sinner
