"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.

Mass Chat: Not much to say, really.

A priest is a priest is a priest is a priest.


  1. Wow Terry! was this a kodak instamatic snapshot of this morning's liturgy during distribution of Holy communion? I always wonder what a Catholic from say 100 years ago or even a 1000 years ago if transported in a time machine to such a liturgy would think? Would they recognise it?

  2. Haha! No it's an old photo from St. Joan of Arc - and that's Fr. D. I love this photo. I just posted it because I've come to that conclusion now: priest is a priest is a priest is a priest... It's like priests are people too. They all have different POV and all kinda sorta do their own thing. Like 'em or not - each one is the minister of God's greatest gifts, the sacraments - sometimes I just have to look beyond what they say or do. They are priests, and my soul would most likely die without them.

  3. yes, it does have that St Joan of Arc feel to it. You are a bigger man than me. I agree with you that priests are all ministers of the sacraments and therefore grace but I wouldn't go so far to say that a priest is a priest is a priest. But, I see why you think that. I don't know. There are some very holy and humble priests out there.

  4. Sorry for the late post...I'm a blog-creeper! Have you read The Power and the Glory?
