"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.

The last days of Johannes Paulus I (Albino Luciani 1978)

30 years ago. I love him.


  1. There are as many conspiracy theories surrounding his death as
    there are of JFK's assassination (if not more).

  2. I loved him, too. So sad we only had him a month. There were all sorts of conspiracy theories about his death. But I think my Mom had the right take on it; that some of God's gifts are short-term, and we need to be thankful for the time that we did have.
