this gifset has no purpose


Therese saying no, to then realize what who she truly wants.


I had a few nuns around me growing up, and they would talk like that; scaring kids with stories of God’s wrath. Made me not want to believe. The only words that stuck with me were something Sister McKenna said about the Bible. She said, “God is love.” Simple and, a little sappy, but that’s the version I like. God is love. The thing that holds us together. And if that’s true, I don’t think he would punish you for making a mistake. I think he’d forgive a mistake.


You can’t control what goes on in the world, no, 
you can just choose to be a part of it, every single day.


But to have been this once, completely, even if only once,
                               seems  b e y o n d  undoing.
