Hail-Mary!

TOM BRADY DESTROYED HIS PHONE TO ESCAPE JUSTICE DURING DEFLATE GATE

How did he do it? 

  • Brady throws an all-star Hail Mary pass into a brick wall.
  • Brady watches a “Will it Blend?” video, orders a Blendtec Total Blender from Amazon, waits 3-5 days for delivery, unboxes the blender, and then smashes the phone with the base of the blender.
  • Brady uses his charm to convince the phone that self-destruction is the best course of action for everyone.
  • Brady checks Twitter from his phone while taking a shower.
  • Brady smashes it with his Super Bowl XXXVI MVP trophy.
  • Brady calls Patriots kicker Stephen Gostkowski to come over and hang out. Gostkowski finds the front door open and Brady nowhere to be found. On the kitchen table is a box with “For Stephen” written in sharpie. Inside the box, Gostkowski finds Brady’s cellphone, a pair of steel toed boots, and an unsigned note that simply reads, “You know what to do.”
  • Brady gently places the phone behind the rear wheel of his Bugatti Veyron and then drives over it.
  • Brady leaves the phone in his pocket and jumps in a pool.
  • Brady travels to the High Hrothgar monastery, uses his charm to convince the ancient Greybeards to teach him the the ways of Thu'um, or “the Voice.” Brady returns from his travels, goes into the backyard, stands before his phone, closes his eyes, focusing on all that he has learned, and with the words “Fus Ro Dah” releases an unrelenting force that utterly decimates the mobile device.
  • Brady smashes it with his Super Bowl XXXVII trophy.

Ugh I keep seeing posts about Olicity being "toxic" because they're "codependent and can't live without each other" and it's so annoying -_-

I find it hilarious. You want to know why? 

This is basically them trying to hold onto their comic book canon:

These people have no basis to their claims. While their fan pandering argument is used as their last hail mary, Olicity being toxic is the second to last. 

I find it funny because Oliver and Felicity depend on each other, yes, all couples do. But they don’t depend on each other to the point where they’re lost without one another. Season 3 they spent most of the time apart. Felicity lost Oliver and it hurt like hell, but she found a way to keep going. Oliver let Felicity go and still was functioning throughout the entire season but he missed her like hell and without her voice of reason, he made some questionable choices. 

Other hilarious arguments against Olicity I’ve seen are: 

  • Felicity only loves the idea of Oliver while Laurel loves the real Oliver – Except they forget that Laurel told Oliver that she has no idea why she ever loved him. Because she certainly doens’t now, and she certainly didn’t love the ‘real’ Oliver back then either. The irony is, is that when Oliver/Laurel were dating before the island, probably the only reason why Laurel stayed with Oliver was because she loved the idea of him. 
  • Felicity can’t handle Oliver’s double life and fighting life like Laurel can because Laurel is a fighter just like Oliver – because apparently Felicity couldn’t handle the double life/crime fighting for 3 years? Lmao this argument is beyond stupid. And to add insult to injury, it’s FELICITY who’s jonesing to get back to TA and fight crime again, not Oliver who’s completely at peace. 
  • It came out of nowhere! – Yet these people are the same people who literally trashed the Olicity fandom saying we were delusional when we pointed out all of their moments in S1 and S2. But when we’re vindicated and Oliver/Felicity finally get together, their argument completely changed. lmao talk about desperate. 
  • Olicity made Arrow into a Soap Opera! - Because apparently Arrow wasn’t a soap opera in season 1 and 2 with all the sister swapping, the parentage issues regarding Malcolm/Thea, Oliver bed hopping, more sister swapping, Oliver’s ex sleeping with his best friend, Diggle being in love with his dead brother’s wife, etc. 

Basically what I’m trying to say is that these people are desperate to discredit Olicity. And the fact of the matter is that they have zero basis to their claims and they’re essentially floundering (like that fish ;)). 

July 23 is the feast day of Saint Bridget of Sweden, a patron of Europe.  Bridget was a fourteenth-century mystic and founder of the Bridgettine religious order.

Saint Bridget is the reputed author of fifteen prayers meditating on Christ’s passion.

First Prayer

Our Father…

Hail Mary…

O Jesus Christ! Eternal Sweetness to those who love Thee, joy surpassing all joy and all desire, Salvation and Hope of all sinners, Who hast proved that Thou hast no greater desire than to be among men, even assuming human nature at the fullness of time for the love of men, recall all the sufferings Thou hast endured from the instant of Thy conception, and especially during Thy Passion, as it was decreed and ordained from all eternity in the Divine plan.

Remember, O Lord, that during the Last Supper with Thy disciples, having washed their feet, Thou gavest them Thy Most Precious Body and Blood, and while at the same time Thou didst sweetly console them, Thou didst foretell them Thy coming Passion.

Remember the sadness and bitterness which Thou didst experience in Thy Soul as Thou Thyself bore witness saying: “My Soul is sorrowful even unto death.”

Remember all the fear, anguish and pain that Thou didst suffer in Thy delicate Body before the torment of the Crucifixion, when, after having prayed three times, bathed in a sweat of blood, Thou wast betrayed by Judas, Thy disciple, arrested by the people of a nation Thou hadst chosen and elevated, accused by false witnesses, unjustly judged by three judges during the flower of Thy youth and during the solemn Paschal season.

Remember that Thou wast despoiled of Thy garments and clothed in those of derision; that Thy Face and Eyes were veiled, that Thou wast buffeted, crowned with thorns, a reed placed in Thy Hands, that Thou was crushed with blows and overwhelmed with affronts and outrages.

In memory of all these pains and sufferings which Thou didst endure before Thy Passion on the Cross, grant me before my death true contrition, a sincere and entire confession, worthy satisfaction and the remission of all my sins. Amen.

Saint Bridget, pray for us.

Minna, all my friends in Japan, I am praying for you now. I hope you and your family are all safe and I am joining you in prayers. -_-)~♥ *hugs*

Hail Maria (Kanji + romaji versions)

The Prayer to Virgin Mary is so strong, and having been consacrated to her… I always pray her the most… She is minna’s mother ♥

Medetashi seichou michimiteru Maria
Shu onmi to tomoni mashimasu
Onmi wa on'na no uchinite shukuserare
Gotainai no onko Iezusu mo shukuseraretamou Tenshu no onhaha sei Maria
Tsumibukai warera no tameni imamo rinju no toki mo
Inori tamae.
Amen.

Hey! So this is literally a ‘shot in the dark, doubt anything will come of it but still trying’ hail mary post but….here goes.
I’ve been the proud owner of a site for Jared Padalecki (J-Padalecki.org) for 9 (yes 9) years now. Sadly, a few months ago I decided to step away from it for a number of reasons, one of them being the tedious task of doing screen captures every week for Supernatural. With how my up & down my life has been over the last year or so, I was always falling behind & I let it stress me out. However, lately I’ve been thinking of stepping back in to that world. Simply because I just love and adore Jared and don’t want to let all that hard work just fade away,,it just doesn’t feel right. 

Now I know there are so many wonderful people on here that do their own SPN gifs & captures and what-not, I thought I’d reach out and ask, would anyone out there be interested in capping Supernatural (specifically Jared’s scenes)  for my site?

If you think you’d like to help out, feel free to hit me up either on here or on twitter (@JPadaleckiOrg)

When we pray, do we need to ask specifically for God to solve certain problem or not? When I ask about a problem it seems I feel worse about it because I put my attention on it.

No, you don’t ever have to pray over anything specific. In fact, comping up with words can sometimes be a “prayer blocker”, for a lot of people. This is why we have so many beautiful written prayers, and even the “basics”, although powerful, the Hail Mary and Our Father.

I usually suggest to my children and others a special type of prayer called “contemplative prayer”. It is very simple and very intimate. It is a prayer in which you imagine Christ, sometime a specific image like a Mystery, sight, sound, smell in complete silence. Sometimes in my deep sufferings I will do this, imagining I’m at the crucifixion, the smell if the dirt and blood, the sound of Mama Mary crying along with those who are present, things of that nature. Sometimes I imagine the nativity, or just simply the face of Christ, and I allow myself to feel adoration for Him.

I hope this helps you, I know it helps my children who often do not have the words in mind, and it helps me as well. Honestly in that silence you have an opportunity to hear God, and be comforted knowing He knows the troubles in your life.
