"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.

O'bama, St. Patrick, and ardent Catholics.

St. Paddy's Day parties at the White House.
The theme at the WH will be green all day. Starting at the top o the morning--or more like 11a.m. -- Obama and Joe Biden will meet with the Taoiseach of Ireland in the Oval Office. A little while later, they'll attend a Shamrock Ceremony in the Roosevelt Room. After meeting with the Northern Ireland officials, Obama will travel to the Capitol where he will deliver remarks at Speaker Nancy Pelosi's St. Paddy's Day lunch.
Then, later in the evening, Obama will deliver the remarks at not one but two St. Patrick's Day receptions at the WH, where he's hosting Irish American lawmakers and other Irish Americans, a White House aide said. - Source


  1. Too bad, he's not attending Mass in a Catholic Church where he could be turned away at Communion..or even attending Mass in a Catholic Church in honor, true honor of the Saint.

    What am I saying? I don't know.

    I only know that photo of Oprah just cracks me up!

  2. I think Oppie is nuts now days.

  3. Does she go by O'prah on St Patrick's Day?

  4. O'prah - she should do that. Wouldn't this pose of hers make a great bobble head?
