"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.

I think traditionalists favor him because he's an unfiltered taste of hard spiritual realities: like St. Alphonsus, St. Leonard of Port Maurice or St. Vincent Ferrer--the so-called Angel of the Last Judgment. When he takes a day off I read Fr. Barron. It really blows your hair back.

  2. I like your description. I haven't followed either of them, but I know they are good guys.

    1. I just got my second email asking who Brandon Vogt is.

    2. As we used to say in prison, "Real a**kickers."

    3. I think Vogt's efforts will have great impact - he's a bright guy.
