"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.

Who is the guy who interviewed the Pope?

Father Antonio Spadaro, S.J.

I've had a link in my sidebar to Fr. Spadaro for a long time - since he wrote on Pier Vittorio Tondelli, the Italian writer (gay) who had been reconciled to the Church before he died.  The essay by Antonio Spadaro is titled Lontano dentro se stessi. L’attesa di salvezza in Pier Vittorio Tondelli [Far off within ourselves. The expectation of salvation in Pier Vittorio Tondelli]  (BTW - I think Fr. Martin S.J. should see to it that the essay is translated and published in America asap.)

  1. Dear Terry,
    I thought you might like to read this wonderful parable based on our Holy Father's interview. It made me glad to wake up today and smile.
