"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.

Flower of Carmel, Fruitful Vine.

"I have stretched out my branches as the turpentine tree, and my branches are of honor and grace.  As the vine, I have brought forth a pleasant odor; and my flowers are the fruit of honor and riches.  I am the mother of fair love, and of fear, and of knowledge, and of holy hope.  In me is all grace of the way and of the truth; in me is all hope of virtue." - Ecclus. 24

But thou O Lord, have mercy on us.

O Virgin Mary, who hast borne the Lord, the Creator of the world.  Thou hast brought forth him that made thee, and ever remained a virgin.

Hail Mary, full of grace, the Lord is with thee.
