I'm Catholic and I blog about it a lot. Other things I like: superheroes, languages, Elementary, Once Upon a Time, Star Wars, history, fairy tales, and Les Misérables in all its many and glorious incarnations. Je parle français aussi.

 

signum-crucis:

Our pilgrimage on earth cannot be exempt from trial. We progress by means of trial. No one knows himself except through trial, or receives a crown except after victory, or strives except against an enemy or temptations.
—St Augustine

Okay, so y’all know the joke about how the disciples rode in a Honda, because it said they were all in one Accord? The other dad my cab driver was telling that joke. (He told so many dad jokes. He was very clearly a dad.) But he phrased it like, “The bible mentions the first car ever. What was it?” And that phrasing threw me off, and I started thinking of like, the first thing in existence, ever. So I go, “uhhhhh FIAT!” And they all started giving me funny looks and I had to explain why THAT WAS A GREAT JOKE COME ON GUYS. Because FIAT LUX. LET THERE BE LIGHT. FIRST WORDS GOD SAID IN THE BIBLE. And the cab driver’s like, “Uh, actually I was going to say Accord, but, uh, thanks for the Latin lesson?”

(the semester is almost over which means i’m drowning under school work plus full time internship plus lent so basically i’m really stressed and could use some prayers if you could spare a moment thank you)
