"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 was especially struck by today's collect for St. Monica.
Grant us, through the intercession of them both (St. Monica and her son Augustine),
that we may bitterly regret our sins and find the grace of your pardon.
