"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.

Allow yourself to be taught. - Maxim of St. John of the Cross



Make me entirely teachable...

O Eternal Word, Word of my God, I want to spend my life in listening to You, to become wholly teachable that I may learn all from You. Then, through all nights, all voids, all helplessness, I want to gaze on You always and remain in Your great light. O my beloved Star, so fascinate me that I may not withdraw from Your radiance. - Prayer of Bl. Elizabeth of the Trinity

Art: Penitent - St. Jerome.

  3. Speaking of asinine...looks like you picked up a troll, Terry. Lucky you.

    O my Jesus, forgive us our sins. Lead all souls to heaven, especially those in most need of Thy Mercy. Immaculate Heart of Mary, pray for us now and at the hour of our death.
