"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.

Friends through thick and thin.

Yesterday I had lunch with a couple of friends from my group - we have all been friends since grade school. I consider them to be my very close friends, closer than family: Married with children, Catholic, and Italian. Just a couple of us are single, and white. It was fun to get together with them, but the time went way too fast.


  1. Wait a minute: you left the house!?!

    No wonder there was so much chatter on the police scanner.

  2. Are you saying Italians aren't white? (Sometimes I feel that way about the Portuguese in my parish - they don't call us "white" but they call us "da English" even though most of us aren't.)

  3. Angela, No - I'm just kidding - I was blond growing up.

  4. I've heard of Italians talking about "white people" and not including themselves among them.
