"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 a dear friend who is suffering very much.
"Lord Jesus, the one whom Thou lovest is sick" (Jn 11:3). The one whom Thou lovest is strayed. I have lost Thee. I cannot find Thee. Find me. Seek me. I cannot find Thee. I have lost my way. Thou art the Way. Find me, or I am utterly lost. Thou lovest me. I do not know if I love Thee; but I know Thou lovest me. I do not plead my love, but Thine. I do not plead my strength, but Thine. I do not plead my deed, but Thine. The one whom Thou lovest is sick. I dare not say: The one who loves Thee is sick. My sickness is that I do not love Thee. That is the source of my sickness which is approaching death. I am sinking. Raise me. Come to me upon the waters. Lord Jesus, "the one whom Thou lovest is sick."(Thanks to Richard for prayer and info, click on image to link to blog post @linenonthehedgrow)
