"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.

"What they want is dead heroes, like Sid Vicious and James Dean. I'm not interested in being a dead (expletive) hero. .. So forget 'em, forget 'em." - John Lennon
I'm pleased something heretofore unpublished from Lennon has now come to light. Rolling Stone came across tapes from John's final interview, which will be in print on newsstands Friday. 'Leaks' from the tapes have circulated media outlets all day. (Story here) I was favorably impressed. Thirty years ago tonight Lennon was gunned down outside the Dakota in Manhattan. Many, many remembered him there today.
May his soul find mercy and love and eternal rest forever.
