"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.

Today's first reading - depending on which form of Mass you attend - had this to say about factions:
"There have to be factions among you in order that also those who are approved among you may become known." - 1 Corinthians 11: 17-26
