"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.

Rainy days and Tuesdays...

I love rainy days - always have - ever since musical chairs instead of recess in 1st grade - I would get so excited I'd almost pee!  So anyway, my garden has already received an inch of rain this morning.  I have a rain gauge you know.  I love rain and natural irrigation.  (No asking for donations for more rain or trips abroad either.)  Hearty laughs all around!  Oh darling!  Life is good, isn't it!

"In the face of egotism, it is up to Christians to proclaim the fundamental notion of sacrifice; in the face of raw pride - even intellectual pride; the notion of humility; in the face of sensuality and indulgence, the law of duty, not made by humans but coming from above..." - Betty Leseur

  1. Now now, Terry, I sent you that rain gauge from your Amazon list, and you said you'd remember me, your special benefactor, at Mass. "TC" is an adequate mention.
