Almost exactly a year ago, I presented myself to Him, devastated with the same heartaches, the same sins. I clung to Him once and He saw me through. Today, I present myself to Him, as broken and as sinful as before. What makes me think He’d drive me away? He in whom a year is but less than a speck. He who never changes. He whose Love is greater than all sin. He whose Love is for sinners.

I saw a sign
I lifted up my thighs
And psoas sign
n. Systematic human corpse mutilation
Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
It is society buying a slave.
From whom? From mysery.
From hunger, from cold, from loneliness, from abandonment, from privation. Melancholu barter. A soul for a bit of bread. Mysery makes the offer, society accepts.
The holy law of Jesus Christ governs our civilization, but it does not yet permeate it; it is said that slavery has disappeared from European civilization. This is a mistake. It still exists, but it weighs now only upon woman, and it is called prostitution.
It weighs upon woman, that is to say, upon grace, upon feeebleness, upon beauty, upon maternity. This is not one of the least of man’s shames.”
- Victor Hugo, Les Misérables
Illustrated Story #16: “Silvanas” (Part 1 of 3). I decided to cut the story into 3 parts because I think that I won’t do the original post justice if I crammed everything in a 6-panel comic strip :) based on Dean Nicco Samonte’s post. You can view the original illustrated post here.
