Till Human Voices Wake Us

And we drown.

signum-crucis:

"Traditionally, Christians in Iraq (specifically in Christian towns) put a Cross that lights up at night on top of their homes starting the first week of September in preparation for the feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross. Although the refugees are out of their homes and they themselves are carrying their cross every day, some maintained the tradition by placing a Cross by their tents in their refugee camps as a reminder of their tradition and faith. May their faith increase more and more and may the Cross of Jesus give them light, strength and life instead of darkness, weakness and death that they are experiencing every day."

José Tapiro y Baro (Spanish, 1830-1913), A man wearing a burnous. Watercolour on paper, 69 x 48.5 cm.

This looks so much like I would’ve imagined St Francis to look like

never loved a gif so much

this is kinda creepy tho

The story behind this painting is very interesting, though.  The artist’s mother was very sick, so the house was always filled a suffocating silence.  This painting depicts him wanting to scream, but having to be silent, hence the anguished expression.  In the whole painting you see figures in the background, one of which is his sister.

If Hollywood could stop portraying every religious/conservative/pro-life person as a preachy, judgmental snob with a stick up their ass that would be great thanks

Republicans: Old white rich guys

Democrats: Everybody else

Take a guess who has more power in society

Normally I’d start to post pictures of many Republicans who are not old white rich guys, but that’s going to take too long. So my followers should add one to the post and reblog. Just keep this going.
