"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.

The Pope and Our Lady Help of Christians

Auxilium Christianorum
Show thyself a Mother ;
Offer Him our sighs,
Who for us Incarnate
Did not thee despise. 

Today is the feast of Our Lady Help of Christians and it is the first day of the Holy Father's pilgrimage to the Holy Land for unity of Christians.  Once again I'm reminded of the Dream of St. John Bosco.

"It is under the title of Our Lady Help of Christians 
that Saint John Bosco had his famous vision 
about Christ’s Church and the Blessed Virgin."

  1. Patroness of Mary Help of Christians Abbey, better known as "Belmont Abbey" in NC. Love to see the Virgin dressed in battle array.
