"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.

On the lack of vocations to the contemplative life.

Fr. Blake had a very good post on the subject.


  1. ROFL! Too bad they don't make shoes like that anymore!

  2. Dear Terry, didn't you know that no one wants to contemplate the Mysteries and pray because we lost the sackcloth and wimples?

    Bring 'em back. That'll fix things.

  3. Gene Hackman is an incredible actor!
    That was funny.
