"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.

Never was it known...



...that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.

Praying for all of our priests: especially those I link to, those who read me, those who are friends or were friends, those whom I offended or annoyed, those I have lost contact with, those who have heard my confessions, given me communion, saved my dying family members, smiled at me, spoke to me - I'm praying for every single priest I have ever known and those I have not, and those most dear to my heart.
.
Remember, O most gracious Virgin Mary, that never was it known that anyone who fled to thy protection, implored thy help, or sought thine intercession was left unaided.



Inspired by this confidence, I fly unto thee, O Virgin of virgins, my mother; to thee do I come, before thee I stand, sinful and sorrowful. O Mother of the Word Incarnate, despise not my petitions, but in thy mercy hear and answer me.  Amen.

  3. Thank you very much, Terry, and all of you.
    I join in your prayer for priests that they may become holy shepherds and true images of Jesus the Good Shepherd.
