"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 Fine Art Collection of Mrs. Marcos.

Mrs Marcos is said to be a keen art collector. 

From BBC:
Artworks belonging to former Philippine first lady Imelda Marcos have been seized by authorities who claim they were acquired with stolen state funds. 
A small number of works were taken away from properties owned by the 85-year-old on the order of the courts. - Read more here.
The lawyers for the Marcos family will appeal.

Couldn't the State have at least waited until after her death?

"Continuous persecution of widows and orphans is a crime. 
Even the Bible says there is a specific place in hell 
for those who oppress widows." - Imelda Marcos


  1. And I am sure there is a special place in hell for those who would dare to oppress shoe collectors as well. ;p ;p

    1. Shoe makers gifted their shoes to her.

  2. Imeldific, some of her art collections are fake and she asked local artists to duplicate it so that she can display these fakes in all her mansions. Bonggacious! (grandiose, fabulous; dressed to the nines; a big event where all the important people are present).
