"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.

Pray for the children-victims of Islamic persecution...

Pakistani Christians
Com passion - to suffer with...
Many years ago a missionary priest heard my confession and urged me to 'pray and make sacrifices for the salvation of souls' echoing the words of Our Lady in her various apparitions of the last two centuries.  In other words, fast and pray for the important things!  If only we could forget ourselves and remember that even little children are shedding their blood as a pure oblation to Christ, the Lamb without spot.  In Iraq, Syria, Egypt, yet most frequently and brutally in Pakistan.  Pray for the martyrs, pray with the martyrs, suffer with the martyrs.
