"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.

Noah released a dove...

But the dove could find no place to perch, and it returned to him in the ark, for there was water over all the earth. Putting out his hand, he caught the dove and drew it back to him inside the ark. - Genesis 8

Then the pope released two doves to ask for peace. One remained on his window sill, while the other flew a few yards, but then returned to the safe refuge of the papal apartment... for there was conflict over all the earth.


  1. Awesome juxtaposition.

  2. piercing juxtaposition that might be prophetically announcing a veiled reality ... had similar thoughts when viewing the tv coverage.
