"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.

    So....if there's a water shortage, what are they doing in barrels full of WATER?!? I can think of a lot of better uses for that water rather than having some guys sitting in it, can't you?
