"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. Elizabeth of Thuringia

It is amazing how mistreated St. Elizabeth was in her lifetime.  Rejected by family after her husband's death, she was treated especially severely by her spiritual director.  Read about her holy life here.

If anyone wishes to come after me, let him deny his very self ... Mark 8 34-35

"Oh who can make this counsel of our Saviour understandable... Oh who can explain the extent of the denial our Lord wishes of us..." - John of the Cross
