"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.

Pray for the Holy Father

As most of you probably know by now, the Holy Father was attacked entering the Basilica for Christmas Eve Mass.  He is reported to be unhurt and got up by himself after a woman jumped the barrier and pushed the Pope down.  Fr. Z has the news report here.

  1. This was horrifying, to say the least.
    But even more horrifying are the comments on YouTube of the video...just plain obscene and hateful towards our Holy Father.
    Long live the Papa Benedict XVI! God preserve him, give him health and protect him from his enemies. Amen.
