"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.

Oops! It's Thanksgiving - don't wreck it.
Well it is only Thanksgiving in the U.S. - not elsewhere - especially in the U.K. As reported here, Archbishop Nichols offered flowers to Hindu deities last Saturday. Come on! Hindus have been killing Catholic Christians in India for the past couple of years and the Archbishop offers flowers to pagan gods? Christian martyrs shed their blood rather than submit to such apostasy. So if the Archbishop doesn't believe in them - does that make it okay? Does he really believe that Jesus is Lord? Is he really preaching Jesus and him crucified when he makes offerings to idols?
When the Son of Man comes, will he find any faith on earth?
