"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.

St. Rose of Lima

Feast day poem for Rose.

I once
a girl


  1. A Random Friar3:52 PM

    A "gitl?" ;)

    Little known fact: She was named Isabel for her grandmother. Her mother had the vision and olfactory sense of roses over her crib, so she started calling her Rosa. However, the grandmother always called her Isabel.

    And they all lived in the same house!

  2. Thanks friar. Fixed it.

  3. Where is the rest of the limerick?
