"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.

The End


  1. Who does not love this movie?

  2. +JMJ+

    I've never seen it!

  3. Oh, you must. Absolutely must.

  4. E - yep - you must. Most of it - or key scenes are on Youtube. The book is better of course - but the film is superb. The ending is so sad.

  5. Heart breaker. Did you ever hear the story that woman, upon whom the film was based, lived with another woman and was thought to be a homosexual?

  6. Robin9:33 PM

    The whole movie is on YouTube - I just finished watching it for the first time. It was GREAT, but I was so disappointed that she left.

    Thanks, Terry!

  7. If I can add something to this:
    The Sister could have persevered, I believe, if she had trusted in God's love and mercy.
    She tried to do it on "her own".
    A great moral teaching here for all of us; God is everything. He has to be the Absolute in every life.
    Our own ideas of perfection have to die; His have to live in us.
