"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.

  1. The Holy Face is our first "icon" embedded into the Holy Shroud...thanks for the reminder (I forgot!)...
    Seeking the Face of God is our Lenten project; becoming focused upon Him in His Sorrows, rejection, suffering and death.
    A great reminder, Terry.
    Many thanks, once again.
