"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.

Little saints: Bill Sackter

William "Bill" Sackter (April 13, 1913 – June 16, 1983) was a mentally disabled man whose fame as the subject of two television movies helped change national attitudes on persons with disabilities. - Source

I watched a deeply moving documentary on Bill.  If you are interested, go here.  Barry Morrow and his family are pretty saintly as well.


  1. At first I read, "Barry Manilow and his family are pretty saintly ..." LOL

  2. Mrs. Sutphin has a devotion to Manilow - of course you know that.
