"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.

Fearless Pope: Mafia are excommunicated.

“Those who in their lives have taken this evil road, this road of evil, such as the mobsters, they are not in communion with God, they are excommunicated.”  Pope Francis in Calabria

  1. I just read about this on another website and the blogger says that "while canonists will take pains to emphasize that the "excommunicated" statement is by no means a formal decree with legal effect" I still hope those folks who engage is such behavior will open their eyes and their hearts before it is too late.

    Money, pleasure/sex, power...too intoxicating for so many to give up.

    I am reminded of the fat, lazy, sensual harlot who lounges in complete indifference, to the ways of the Lord, while she drinks herself to death as she drowns in her desires.
