"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.

"According to St. Thomas, simplicity is attached to the virtue of veracity, which puts truth into speech, gestures, manner of being and of living." (Three Ages of the Interior Life)

Hey - somebody! Please!

Could someone please call Tony Bennett and tell him he can't sing any more?! Sheesh!

Do you realize...

Some of my favorite blogs are the ones I link to in my sidebar? Either on this blog or on Abbey 2 - but many of them do not link to me. Do I complain? No honey, I don't. Do I think nasty thoughts about these people? Yes honey, I do.

Funny nun pictures - then and now...

And now...

Those infamous McDonald Sisters of Corondelet.

"I'll drink to that!"

Was that you St. Nick?

Too busy I guess.

Yeah, St. Nicholas flew right by my house today - I didn't even get a piece of coal. Nothing hurts more than being ignored.

Now this is gay.
Fr. Z has a post on wearing blue for Advent. Yeah - real priests (men) do not wear blue for Advent.
That's all.
[Offline until further notice. Happy St. Nicholas Day!]

'Twas the night before St. Nicholas...

And all the kids were in a pickle...

The End.
