"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.

Remains of the Winter...

A Very Special Nature Report.

It is a curious sight... a strange phenomenon not often seen.  I was able to capture this scant formation of snow upon my boulevard ... a left-over from the great glacial movement of recent snows which lifted this once giant boulder of ice and snow onto the ruined grasses of the plain.  The strange configuration withstood global-warming induced temperatures in the high 40's and low 50's yesterday.  Slowly melting as the temperature soars to nearly 38 degrees this morning... heralding a new springtime of yard work?  Or something more sinister?  Wild weather, severe storms, tornadoes... the effects of climate change threaten us all.

How very ironic - the Church stands, the snow melts...
what does it portend?  Is the snow 'poodle-shaped'?
