"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.

Please pray for Theo.

Theo is my friend Angela's uncle.  He lives in the Netherlands.  He has a terminal illness and is scheduled to be euthanized this coming Friday, feast of the Annunciation.  Please pray for him and his family.  I pray Our Lady of the Angels to dispatch her angels to intervene in this matter.  Our Lord specifically asked that we pray the chaplet of Divine Mercy for the dying.  How important that is makes so much sense in a situation like this.

It is nothing less than stunning that euthanasia has become routine in the Netherlands.
