"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.

Cardinal Burke called on the carpet: Special audience with Pope Francis today.

What?  See what you can do with headlines?

But this is all they wrote:


Vatican City, 8 January 2014 (VIS) – Today, the Holy Father received in audience:
Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke, patron of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta.

Bonus special: Beverly Sutphin's pick for 'song for this post' here.

    1. LOL! I read a nasty piece last night saying he was reprimanded by his superiors because of his clothing budget - totally made up - all because he said men had been feminized. They were going after him for wearing traditional clerical garb and so on.

    1. That's a better headline - thanks!

  3. I heard that Pope Francis had invited a couple women to be in the room with them...

    1. LOL! You are on a roll lately.

    2. Heck, I just might blog that.
