“Are you not ashamed of such pretentions?” she said. “You, who are no more than any ignorant plow boy of our land!”

Joseph testified simply: “The gift has returned back again, as in former times, to illiterate fishermen.” —#Saints Vol. 1, & “Vicissitudes Illustrated,” Towle
God chooses the “weak things of the earth” to do his work. There are many good reasons for this. A humble man is teachable & obedient to his Lord’s will. Most importantly, Godly miracles wrought by humble beings cannot be misinterpreted as intellectual sophistry or might of arm.
God made the little shepherd David into a giant slayer, a king, & father of the lineage from whence the Messiah wld be born. He made Joseph, a boy left in a pit to die, later enslaved & imprisoned, into an interpreter of dreams, a leader in Egypt, & a savior of famished nations.

The year: 2015
Defense: Cover 3
#Saints QB Drew Brees was still at the edge of his prime hitting B. Cooks in stride with his passes.

He was rewarded with a defense ranked 32nd in points allowed and 31st in yards allowed that season.
Another gem from 2015. Kids today really won't remember that Brees could sling it with the #Saints.

Love the ability to navigate the EDGE pressure while stepping up to read the safety off of play-action. Talking about split-second decisions.
Year: 2011 (THE YEAR)
Defense: Tampa 2
Before HD kids there was DH. Devery Henderson could run the 7-9 as good as anyone in the NFL. Drew Brees could throw it as good as anyone in the NFL.

One of the most memorable #Saints TDs of all time. Goes 80 total yards.

The #Saints still have a chance to win this game, but not with Drew Brees... his arm is gone and he has thrown multiple INTs.

They should bench him for Jameis Winston.

Not how you expect top 10 QBs to end their careers. Image

Drew Brees throws a pick.
It wasn't even so much his lack of arm this time, it was a terrible decision by Brees.

First INT for Drew Brees in 3 games against them leads to a Tom Brady to Mike Evans touchdown.

Lattimore got beat.

Bucs take the lead.

In 2018, the #49ers unveiled all-white throwbacks into the team's uniform rotation. It is a tribute to the 1994 #SuperBowl championship team.

Since then, fans have lauded this and called for the red version to return.

Here is the history of these uniforms.

Continue thread.🔽 ImageImage
These throwback uniforms originally date back to the 1955 #49ers team. That team went 4-8.

The helmet was red (with no logo) and silver pants were sometimes worn. The original white uniforms featured black stripes.

This uniform was only worn this season.

In 1994, the #NFL celebrated its 75th year. Teams were to participate in league-wide throwback uniform celebration beginning in Week 3. A commemorative 75th anniversary patch was worn by all teams.

11th AUGUST: ST PHILOMENA, VIRGIN AND MARTYR

2. it was assumed to be the grave of a martyr. The remains were those of a young maiden.

On 8 June, 1805, the relics were translated to the church of Mungano, Diocese of Nola.

The earthenware plates were fixed in front of the grave as follows: LUMENA PAX TECUM FI.
3. The plates were evidently inserted in the wrong order, and the inscription should doubtless read PAX TECUM FILUMENA.

The letters are painted on the plates with red paint, dating from about the middle or second half of the second century. Apart from the letters, the plates

Christianity arrived in China by way of Syria in the 600s. Depending on China's relations with the outside world, Christianity over the centuries was free to grow or was forced to operate secretly.

The 120 martyrs in this group died between 1648 and 1930. Most of them (eighty-seven) were born in China and were children, parents, catechists or laborers, ranging from nine years of age to seventy-two. This group includes four Chinese diocesan priests.

The thirty-three foreign-born martyrs were mostly priests or women religious, especially from the Order of Preachers, the Paris Foreign Mission Society, the Friars Minor, Jesuits, Salesians and Franciscan Missionaries of Mary.

“ISN’T PRAYING TO MARY AND THE SAINTS BREAKING THE FIRST COMMANDMENT?”

~thread~
1. “QUESTION:

I was wondering about praying to Mary and to the saints. God gave us ten commandments and the first of those is ‘thou shalt not have strange gods before me.’
#TenCommandments #Bible
2. Is praying to Mary and the Saints not breaking that Commandment?

ANSWER:

The first Commandment as you rightly point out is about worshipping God and Him alone: True worship (as opposed to veneration or honour) does indeed belong to God alone,

#Christianity #CatholicChurch
3. and we should never worship man or any other creature as we worship God.

When we pray to Mary or to the saints, we’re simply asking them to help us, by praying to God on our behalf. We do not worship them. We do not make them God.

Drew Brees is still in this mindset? unfreaking believable.

“I will never agree with anybody disrespecting the flag of the United States of America or our country.”

saints players need to educate drew brees - his statement is embarrassing at this point of time. it was a dumb thing to say then and it's especially dumb now not to get that peaceful kneeing was about *injustice* and *police brutality* and had nothing to do with the american flag
Clarifying: It is not the black community's "job" to educate a 41-year old who's clearly willfully ignorant and tone-deaf. My tweet intended to say that teammates should help @drewbrees, who has huge platform/voice, to better learn and use his stage to support, not add ignorance.

Instant Round 2 Grades! Here we go! #NFLDraft2020

Starting with...
33. CIN - Tee Higgins WR9 ... C

My 44th overall player, I think there are better values & better WRs available.

I also would've gone OT here, unless an AJ Green trade is imminent.

Building around Burrow is a good move, though. #Bengals
34. IND - Michael Pittman Jr. WR12 ... D

I'm lower than many on Pittman - 53rd - I just think there are much better prospects at WR. Multiple are still on the board: Laviska 21st, Mims 36th, Edwards 43rd.

Also, not the route I would've gone here with such a valuable pick.
