"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.

The Jesuit Fr. Henri de Lubac told a famous priest on the day of the man's priestly ordination: "ask the Holy Spirit that he grants you the saints' anti-clericalism".
