"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.

March is the month of St. Joseph

What I'm up to.
I'm working on my own version of a Cuzco-style retablo of St. Joseph and the Child Jesus - hopefully I will finish it tomorrow.  I'm not sure I like it, it is certainly not as nice as the one shown here - I will title it St. Joseph, Protector of Carmel, with the Infant Jesus
