"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.

The Pope in Britain: Don't mention the war!



He did though!
.
The Holy Father barely stepped off the the plane and then:
.
The German pope spoke glowingly of Britain's history and, significantly because of his own background, praised its people for standing up to the "Nazi tyranny" that was wreaked on the country by his own people in World War II. - Pope in UK 
.
I can't wait to hear what else he says.
.
"Benedict XVI is the Pope of Christian Unity."

  3. We may be in store for some real gems...P.Benedict is nobody's fool...these British atheists think they're so "cool and groovy"...I think he'll slice them up like bologna for dinner! (But charitably...unlike me, who would go at 'em with a hatchet!!..that's why I'm in a cloister, far from doing any real harm!)
