"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.

Are there bishops in heaven?

"Dad, are there bishops in heaven?"


"We hope so honey, but we only know for sure that those who have been canonized are there - that is why we have to pray so hard for them."

"Oh! Oh! Dad! Are there bishops in hell then?"


"Hon, again, nobody knows for sure, but from the sounds of it, quite a few bishops don't think anyone is there at all."

    The Lord is busy spitting out lukewarms, but it's not His bishops, I'll tell you that.
