"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.

An Icon of St. Benedict
I just want to share this photo of a magnificent icon of St. Benedict with my readers who appreciate real icons. It was presented to Fr. Mark and his monastic community for their chapel in Tulsa, Oklahoma. The icon was commissioned by a close friend of the monastery, and a Benedictine Oblate himself. For more photos and information go to Fr. Mark's post, A Gift: The Icon of Our Father Saint Benedict
