"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.

Oklahoma tornado...

"Everything is gone!"

I watched one news report and all those interviewed kept saying the same thing, "Everything is gone!" - I thought of Fr. Z.

Fr. Z always seems to encourage 'preparedness' - because everything we have could be taken in an instant.  Even more importantly, he encourages us to be spiritually prepared... go to confession...
Now and then I post here about the need to have a plan for when or if something really bad happens. I am especially concerned that parents of small children have some sort of plans in place for some different scenarios. Obviously you can’t cover every possibility, but some basic steps could make a difference. Having clean drinking water and food for 72 hours, warm clothing, a way to communicate, means of self-defense and so forth.
Please develop the good practice of examining your conscience every day and going to confession regularly. Please teach your children to examine their consciences and take them to confession, teaching them what to do and why. - WDTPRS 

This is Fr. Z at his finest.

United in prayer for the victims of natural disaster, terrorism, and war.   

A subitanea et improvisa morte… From a sudden and unprovided death, spare us O Lord.”
