"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.

Pictures at a Consistory.

Cardinal Bertone with Emeritus Pope Benedict.

Two Popes.

Fr. Z has photos from the consistory today, the feast of the Chair of Peter.  Pope Benedict was invited and participated.  It is an excellent symbol of continuity of the papacy, and in itself it is no small consolation and assurance that the Holy Spirit is guiding the Church.  Fr. Z has more photos here.

It warms my heart to see Pope Benedict.  I also love Pope Francis, but I'm tired of reading what others write about what he says, as well as reading stories based upon incomplete soundbites intended to suggest he changed Catholic teaching.
