"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.

Nathaniel (Bartholomew) must have been an extraordinary fellow even for Jesus, since our Lord remarked, "This man is a true Israelite. There is no guile in him." [Jn 1:47] (I like the word guile better than duplicity.)
It seems to me it is the rare bishop today the Lord could say that about.
