"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.

Finished the emails.

Wow! I was gone a long time.
.
Michael Dubriel died. Susan let me know by email - I just read it. I'm so shocked and so very sorry for Amy and the boys. I find it so difficult to comprehend. No, I did not know them.
.
Did I read them? Yes.
.
Know them? No.
.
Oh I referenced them a couple of times - without knowing them. Then I began reading them, got to like them - and respect them. I feel so badly. Prayers for them.
.
You see however... This proves my point. These blogs we do are nothing. We are nothing... at least we are NOT our blogs. We are NOT! These blogs are NOT important.

  1. I feel sorrow for her and her young boys.
    It's weird, death makes you see how persons can't be replaced by anything. And everyone is unique.

  2. But the people behind the blogs are important, the blog itself merely fascilitates a way for us to get to know one another.
