"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.

On The Mystical City of God
I always found the Mystical City of God to be nearly impossible to read, but I think it was because I approached the work of Ven. Mary of Agreda more out of curiosity than devotion. It seems to me that I need a special grace to be able to read the work attentively. I'm only now beginning to read a few sections corresponding to the mysteries of the Rosary, and I sense Our Lady has granted me the grace to do so - perhaps through the intercession of Ven. Solanus Casey, who used to read the book while kneeling.
