"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.

Br. Stephen, a novice with the Cistercian Abbey of Spring Bank, Wisconsin, has kept a personal blog since he entered the monastery, in a way offering readers a chance to follow him as he discerns and responds to his call. Br. Stephen blogs at Sub Tuum.
Likewise, Fr. Mark of Vultus Christi has established a new monastic community in the diocese of Tulsa, and just recently received two postulants. With Fr. Mark, we not only witness the birth of a new community, but the establishment of an apostolate which brings to fore devotion to the Eucharistic Face of Christ. Closely associated with this is the erection of an association for women known as Spiritual Motherhood for Priests.
