"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.

Saving the Blessed Sacrament in Madison.
I picked up this photo from Fr. Z's blog. It shows firefighters rescuing the Blessed Sacrament from the fire which burned down the Cathedral of St. Raphael at Madison, Wisconsin in 2005. Bp. Morlino told Fr. Z that no one would let him into the wreckage to retrieve the Blessed Sacrament. The Bishop then found some Catholic firefighters who rescued the ciborium and luna containing the Blessed Sacrament from the ruins. - Story and more photos here.
