"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.

I'm talking about the "new" one.
I think calling for a new Pentecost is just a figure of speech - right? Because in a sense wouldn't it be the same as calling for a new Resurrection? I really don't know the answer to that however.
Although I couldn't help wonder... What if the internets is the new Pentecost everyone was hoping for? You know, because as Scripture tells us, language was scrambled at Babel - but then at Pentecost the gift of tongues came and everything went to Latin - until the Council - and then it went back to being mixed up until the Charismatic movement came along. But now the Church and the world is online - omigosh! The internets has become like one language everyone can speak and understand. What if this is the new Pentecost of the digital continent? I know!
So keep on bloggin' brothas and sistas!
