"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.

"In the Gospel the very root of sin is the pretense we can save ourselves by our own effort, that we can find security in ourselves and one another." - Olivier Clement: Magnificat daily meditation for 3 April, 2009
