"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.

Don't waste your time ... remix.

“You are called to speak of Jesus to your contemporaries, 
not only those within your parishes or associations, 
but especially to those outside.”

Pope Francis:  Stop wasting your life online.
“Maybe many young people waste too many hours on futile things,” the pope said in a short speech in Rome on Tuesday, as quoted by Reuters. 

“Our life is made up of time, and time is a gift from God, so it is important that it be used in good and fruitful actions,”
 he stressed. 

According to Pope Francis, actions certainly not worthy of wasting one's time include “chatting on the internet or with smartphones, watching TV soap operas, and [using] the products of technological progress, which should simplify and improve the quality of life, but distract attention away from what is really important.”  - Source

  1. "I wasted the last eight years online"

    Not all was/is a waste of time...I have learned much from you and from the Church. I have learned who to avoid and who to listen to.

    I have learned too, that there are many who are suffering in the worst possible way while I fancied myself a savvy Internet user to puff myself up...sad.

    Lord Jesus, in your mercy, keep us close to you in hope, in faith, and in charity.

    Thanks again, Terry for your great blog!
