  • Fe: why don't we just give the people what they want??
  • Ti: Need I remind you, Fe, that our current inventory of Things We Have Left to Give People stands at Empty.
  • Fe: oh...
  • Ti: I swear to god, this is the last time I put you in charge of the Things We Have Left to Give People box
Thunderstorm a.k.a Lardo

The idea was inspired by Thor’s character, but adapted to suit Lardo’s Vietnamese background.

In Vietnamese mythology, the chief deity Ngoc Hoang appointed Thien Loi, the God of Thunder as the Divine Judge, putting him in charge of punishing criminals, blasphemers, and the seriously immoral. His weapons are two axes, one made of bronze and the other one of stone.

Lardo and her family are his descendants and are duty bound to carry his legacy. She uses the bronze axe.

Care for the flock that God has entrusted to you. Watch over it willingly, not grudgingly–not for what you will get out of it, but because you are eager to serve God.

1 Peter 5:2

After Thought

All of us have been given responsibility to care for a portion of God’s flock. He has put us in charge to be an extension of His hand.

~ Pastor Bob

It seems like a number of friends feel themselves under some kind of trial or test lately. I cannot write all of you, except to say that we are all truly one in this struggle for sanctification and the higher road that is Jesus Christ.

Perhaps, in the case of some of you, the devil is just really angry for no other reason than the fact that you been trying to be a light that shines in the darkness, a salt that flavors the lives of others with love and goodness. 

Maybe you touched someone, even on Tumblr, and reinforced the meaning and importance of their life. And if he, the enemy, is somehow getting back at you, know that in some mysterious way we are all going to help each other, a lot, in the next few days. We are going to join our pain to the Passion, the Cross, and the Five Holy Wounds. Not only will this bear fruit somehow for each of us as individuals, but for all of us as a mystical communion of love and compassion, which is the Catholic family.
