"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.

"Expect things that are sudden."
I think I'm like Michael Brown.
The headline from Spirit Daily, "Expect things that are sudden" attracted me today. I had the exact same thoughts lately - "Golly Dr. Thorndyke, it's sure been quiet around the asylum lately, huh?" Nothing big has happened - no big cataclysm - nothing - YET! Da-ta-DAHHHHHHHHHHH!
I know I disparage apparition claims and seers who have gardens popping out of their bosoms for no explicable reason, yet I like to read about such things - guilty pleasures, I suppose. Some of these revelations may be true after all. Nevertheless, "expect things that are sudden" sounds more like a general horoscope reading than anything more than a hunch. I expect things that are sudden all of the time, and nothing happens.
Nevertheless, I'm with Michael - something is going to happen - suddenly. Just watch. (You think I'm kidding - but I'm not. BTW - I have no special knowledge about this. I just feel it.)
