"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.

Pondering the vanity and brevity of life...
I all alone beweep my outcast state,
And trouble deaf Heaven with my bootless cries,
And look upon myself, and curse my fate..." - Shakespeare, Sonnet 29
"Let us fall into the hands of the Lord
and not into the hands of men.
For equal to his majesty
is the mercy that he shows." - Sirach 2:18
