My AP euro teacher wouldn’t let our class watch Les Mis so we barricaded the door and screamed “VIVE LA REVOLUCIÓN” when he tried to get in.

in 7 years its going to be the 20s again so we can bring back swing music and the aesthetics of that era but keep modern values who’s with me
you can’t repeat the past
can’t repeat the past? why, of course you can! of course you can.
The Lord created us in His image and likeness, and we are the image of the Lord, and He does good and all of us have this commandment at heart: do good and do not do evil. All of us. ‘But, Father, this is not Catholic! He cannot do good.’ Yes, he can. He must. Not can: must! Because he has this commandment within him. Instead, this ‘closing off’ that imagines that those outside, everyone, cannot do good is a wall that leads to war and also to what some people throughout history have conceived of: killing in the name of God. That we can kill in the name of God. And that, simply, is blasphemy. To say that you can kill in the name of God is blasphemy.
The Lord has redeemed all of us, all of us, with the Blood of Christ: all of us, not just Catholics. Everyone! ‘Father, the atheists?’ Even the atheists. Everyone! And this Blood makes us children of God of the first class! We are created children in the likeness of God and the Blood of Christ has redeemed us all! If we, each doing our own part, if we do good to others, if we meet there, doing good, and we go slowly, gently, little by little, we will make that culture of encounter: we need that so much. We must meet one another doing good.
Today is [the feast of] Santa Rita, Patron Saint of impossible things – but this seems impossible: let us ask of her this grace, this grace that all, all, all people would do good and that we would encounter one another in this work, which is a work of creation, like the creation of the Father. A work of the family, because we are all children of God, all of us, all of us! And God loves us, all of us! May Santa Rita grant us this grace, which seems almost impossible. Amen." -
#apologies for length but this is fucking important#still crying about it#because guys#oh my god guys#the pope actually said this#out loud#at massI don’t know if there will ever be enough words#religion#quotes words
OH MAN THIS. THE POPE ACTUALLY SAID THIS. AT MASS. Oh man I like this pope. This pope gets it.
ETERNAL CREATION OF THE PRESENT. THE NECESSITY OF DOING THE IMPOSSIBLE. Holy shit, this pope really gets it.
okay though the likeness of God thing that often gets read as ‘in the appearance of God’ which is ah pretty clearly not a. great interpretation. because then you get to ‘what the hell does God look like anyway’ and it devolves from there but the way it was once explained to me (i believe this was in a christian and the arts class?) was that the main aspect of God is that He is creative and that the act of creativity is His main act (the idea of creative love is kind of big in my conception of God? and i think it shows up in a minor prophet or two not exactly in those words and i mean a lot of the ways that Jesus loved were creative) and so as humans we have inherited God’s creativity for better or for worse (i also tend to think that the process of being is inherently creative because you have to remake yourself at least every day [which is why the articles about ‘the habits of creative people’ bother me because like??? everyone is creative???? no.]) and ah yeah. (i can tell that the pope has read borges.) (borgevino)

Husband animates joke about tortilla chips told by his drunk wife.
Pretty much the best thing I’ve ever seen in my life.
My friend was giving her pet hedgehog a bath and he accidentally fell into the drain in the sink.
His face was priceless.
So got the unsourced post taken down, and now I’m putting all of them, including WGWG, into one post as a master post. To my followers I swear this is the last time I’ll shove these drawings in your face, I’m just trying to make it easier for people who wanted them all in a group. Hopefully having them all together will keep people from reposting it without a source again.
Anyway, all of the John Green books, plus Will Grayson Will Grayson. c:
THIS IS AMAZING FANART!
I LOVE YOU, TINY COOPER!!
