"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.

Here's a thought. The next Pope.





If something should happen to Pope Francis (God forbid), chances are - or I should say, more than likely - one of these men will become the next Pope.

I'm busy painting so all I have time for on the blog is to push buttons and check emails.

That's all.

  2. Funny, for some reason I have about zero interest in who the next Pope might be. Unusual for me.

    1. Pope fatigue. Pope's are meant to be seen, not heard. That's the way it used to be, anyway.


      What? I'm kidding!

    3. Stupendous sleuthing there, Ter, on a par with the success of the predictions of papabile the last three times around. Hey, weren't you like, working on a project or something, today?

    4. Yes. I've been painting and can't let it go - have you ever over worked a painting - I did that today. I am exhausted. It's difficult to paint when the eyesight goes. I have to schedule surgery asap.

  3. I am praying for a good outcome of their meetings this week.
    That's my mantra, I mean story, and I'm sticking to it.
    Oh, and I miss Nan and Adrienne!

  4. I think Samuel L Jackson, that one in the bottom row, would make a good pope.

  5. Speaking of pushing buttons, some believe God is pushing ours:

    3. I love that response! I really do - it is so ... existential! That made my day - I'm serious.
