"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.

Feast of Santiago

Today is the feast of St. James, my Baptismal patron.

  1. Happy feast of St. James!

    (He is a good, strong patron to stay close to.)

  2. Thanks Mrs. R - I agree - he imparts great fortitude.

  3. This is my baptismal name feast as well. Happy shared feast day Terry!

    St. James was the patron of the last homeroom class I taught as a full-time teacher. I still feel very drawn to him.

  5. Although my parish is under the patronage of another St James, I would like to give thanks and glory to God!!

    My three-year long engineering project wrapped up this morning, and I ended up being 7 percent UNDER BUDGET!! It will be submitted for an annual "Excellence in Engineering" award for my company!! Also looking to impliment my design broadly across the company!!

    News like this really make sthe day-to-day crap I often deal with SO worth it!!

    Thanks also to everyone for their prayers and support and listening to my whining and bitching :) God Bless!!

    Happy feast day, Terry! And I'm guessing it is appropriate to say, A belated happy birthday, as well! (I was 4 days old when I was baptized 51 years ago, I'm guessing it was similar for you?)

    May God sustain you and grant you many more healthy, happy and holy years.


  7. Congratulations Sara!
