"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.

St. Monica

Celebrated as patron of alcoholics, St. Monica seems to have had an inordinate attachment to wine as an adolescent, but she wasn't a drunk.

Monica cried a lot though.

St. Monica also had a great influence upon her son
St. Augustine.


  1. I drink and cry all the time. Maybe my son is destined for holiness too.
