"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.

St. Paul of the Cross

"Build an oratory within yourself, and there have Jesus on the altar of your heart. Speak to Him often while you are doing your work. Speak to Him of His holy love, of His holy sufferings and of the sorrows of most holy Mary" - St Paul of the Cross writing a reply on Jan 9, 1760 to a busy married woman who felt that she couldn't find enough time to pray.

even the darkness is not dark to you;
the night is bright as the day,
for darkness is as light with you.
Ps. 139:12

  1. For anyone who wants to go deeper into the faith, listen to this outstanding homily on St. Paul of the Cross. It's by a remarkably wise (and still young!) FSSP priest.
