"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.

Thanksgiving after Communion.

Healing man born blind - Vasily Surikov
The man born blind answered, "I do believe Lord!"
-and he worshipped him.

If you desire to enter into the prayer of recollection, never neglect the quiet prayer of thanksgiving after Holy Communion.  Think of yourself as the woman at the well, or the blind man in today's Gospel.  Christ is right there, within you, and he says:  "You have seen him, and the one speaking with you is he." - John 9

Do not ignore him within you - do not leave him alone.
