Your Fav is Problematic : George Blagden
  • ships Enjoltaire more than you
  • can speak French
  • “does France have the same moon?”
  • can’t draw hearts
  • is a menace
  • pls somebody arrest him I need a break

                                       We call on you, Dear God, for you will answer us;
                                               turn your ear to us and hear our prayer.
                                              Show us the wonders of your great love,
                                                 They close up their callous hearts,
                                              and their mouths speak with arrogance.

                                      They have tracked us down, they now surround us,
                                               with eyes alert, to throw us to the ground.
                                                  They are like a lion hungry for prey,
                                                   like a fierce lion crouching in cover.

                                         Rise up, Lord, confront them, bring them down                                                         rescue us from the wicked.

From Psalm 17: longing for vindication and protection, a plea to be heard in times of crisis. Photo: 100 years ago, Sunday mass held in the ruins of a church in Le Doulieu, France
