"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.

"He also said, 'A grumbler is not a Christian. Anyone who gives evil for evil is not a Christian. An irritable man is not a Christian.'" (I substituted 'Christian' for 'monk' - since most of us would excuse ourselves saying, "I'm not a monk".)
"He also said, 'Evil cannot drive out evil. If anyone hurts you, do good to him and your good will destroy his evil.'" - Sayings of the Desert Fathers
