For Carmen, it was an enlightening experience.
Last Saturday our kind teachers planned a delightful trip to Bedloe's Island to see Bartholdi's great statue of Liberty enlightening the world....
Like some other culture-heroes, he steals sun, moon and stars out of a box, so enlightening the dark earth.
It is granted only according to act, and merits as the law in enlightening, warning or promising reward.
Among his best-known orations are that delivered at the unveiling of the Bartholdi statue of Liberty enlightening the World (1886), an address at the Washington Centennial in New York (1889), and the Columbian oration at the dedication ceremonies of the Chicago World's Fair (1892).
Grace, by enlightening, forgiving sin and strengthening his moral powers, helps man to fulfil this purpose.
