"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. Therese and "Philomena".

"'If I had not been accepted in Carmel, I would have entered a Refuge (for fallen women) and lived out my days there, unknown and despised among the poor penitents. I would have been happy to be taken as one of them, and would have become an apostle among them, telling them what I thought of God's mercy.'" - St.  Therese, from 'St. Therese By Those Who Knew Her'.

  1. That's a beautiful statue, but you know, it doesn't look a bit like Therese. I wonder why hardly any artwork of her does when there are so many photos of her? No one gets her sweet, round face right. And they always tend to make her look like a 35-year-old actress/model.
