"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.

Some advice.

This may apply to some com-box debates that go on as well.

"One strong recommendation, never engage the devil in conversation. I mean never. If you must tell the devil to depart; if you want the devil to go, you know where, tell him, but never engage him in what could even be interpreted as a friendly conversation. I have had enough experience of people foolish enough to engage in conversation with the devil who have suffered disastrous consequences as a result." - Source


  1. I have, I wont again, advice taken.It seemed like a okay idea at the time.

  2. Here is what I wrote on youtube.The Marilyn Manson folks were most nasty.
    Satan your time is coming to a close.Not only did I have the pleasure of turning my back on you and your lying scheming ways ,but many of my brothers and sisters in Christ have too.We still have 2/3s of the heavenly angels left and with Christ Jesus as Victor and King.We will with one voice rejoice as u r finally thrown into the pit with all of those who chose 2 serve u.Remember how it started in heaven? When u told God u would not serve? Your days are oh so numbered.Eternal death is your prize...
    Now at the time it seemed like an awesome idea.The Marilyn people didn't think so. Now I feel a little scared and bad. Where is my dear Priest right now??
    Geese I wonder where else I am screwing up?Thanks for the warning.

  3. good advice from fr hardon

    good characterizations of the devil

    BE GONE, Satan! in the name of Jesus -Amen

  4. Belinda - Jesus has conquered the evil one - trust in Jesus - you haven't screwed up. Jesus understands little children when they yell stuff out - he protects you and keeps you safe. Pray and don't worry, as Padre Pio liked to say - and hold onto your rosary.

  5. Thank you Padre Pio, It was so nice to hear from you,and Terry thank you for the comforting words. God bless you Terry! I believe that I am Catholic because of Padre Pio.It's so cool that he would pray a little pagan protestant girl in , how sweet of him.I felt an instant connection when I saw on t.v. his coffin being carried thru the streets in 1968.I was only 7.Oh how I love Catholics.How great is my dissapointment in the ones that are traitiors.(Hey don't even add the numbers up for my age, stop it!) I am still pretty cute, and humble too!!Just kidding, mostly.

  6. Oh, Terry, pay no mind to fools. I enjoy your blogs and besides, blogs should be done for one's own pleasure and satisfaction.

  7. That last comment is good advice for you, yourself, Terry.

  8. Thanks Terry - very timely and greatly appreciated...

    And I will be linking to this, as well as highlighting a few passages.
