"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.

Entry into Jerusalem...
"He did not deem equality with God something to be grasped at."
Most of the people who followed Jesus applauded his entry into Jerusalem, only to abandon him a few days later. Traditionally, many people who never go to church throughout the year, do so during Holy Week - or at least on Good Friday. They weren't with the Lord in the good times, waving the palms all around, but they come to console him in the bad times... they console him in his sufferings by their repentance.
