"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.

Did I ever tell you about a guy I knew who told me he made a nun's veil and wimple for himself out of dish towels and a bath towel and then did his ironing while listening to chant?  When I asked why, he said it helped him get things done.  He also smoked marijuana. 


  1. Listening to chant while ironing would be beautiful. Playing "let's pretend we're nuns" while ironing? Not so much. But hey, I guess it beats sitting around eating cheetos.

  2. Hey, I know that guy...he lasted two hours here...not monastic enough, he said...:-)!
    Don"t hurt yourself shovelling snow.
