"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.

45 million Americans mentally ill.
More than 45 million Americans, or 20 percent of U.S. adults, had some form of mental illness last year, and 11 million had a serious illness, U.S. government researchers reported on Thursday. [...] The survey found that 23.8 percent of women had some form of mental illness, compared with 15.6 percent of men.
A disproportionate share of these have blogs as well as accounts with other social networks.
