"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.
I Googled my name to see what images came up for me - aside from some of my paintings, this image came up as me. I guess I don't mind.
(I'm kind of thinking I may return to this blog exclusively. The Catholic Company is now beginning to post advertisements on Abbey2, and everyone knows how I despise crass commercialism on blogs. I'm also not so impressed with St. Blogs and their Stepford Catholic assemblage of writers. And I don't trust "Catholic" companies that much any more either. This development raises all sorts of conscientious objections for me. I'm plunged into re-evaluating blogs, their meaning and purpose. Oy! I didn't see this crises coming back so soon! It's Cathy's doing - I'm sure of it!)
I don't care what anyone else thinks of her, I think she did the best she could with what she had, and she loved Jesus - the only way she knew how. (That is all any of us can do.) I've been praying for her ever since I saw her on Larry King, and now she is dead. May she rest in peace.
(I'm still on hiatus - I just wanted to remember Tammy Faye.)
