"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 Centenary of the Death of Pope St. Pius X

One hundred years ago.

August 20, 1914, Pope Pius X died.

A fitting memorial here.

I find it strange there has been no real mention of this other than a few websites online.  There seems to be a great silence - especially in Rome.  Maybe I just haven't noticed?

Feast Day 21 August
St. Pius X pray for us.

I found this at Vatican News: Echoes of the pontificate of St. Pius X.

  1. You find the great silence strange? Seriously? I think it makes perfect sense when you think about everything Pius X wrote and taught.
