"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.

Wonderful news concerning the cause of Archbishop Oscar Romero

Oh God!  The white-robed army of Martyrs, praise Thee.
Holy Church throughout the world acknowledges Thee...

From Fr. James Martin S.J.

Breaking: "Avvenire" reports that the Congregation of the Causes of Saints has "unanimously" voted that the great Archbishop Oscar Romero was killed "in odium fidei," out of hatred for the faith, that is, as a martyr. The official recognition of Monsenor Romero as a martyr is an immense, and long-awaited, step forward in his canonization. Such a decision will likely mean a swift declaration of his beatification. Santo subito! - Fr. Martin

How could he not be?  Killed at the altar of God, his blood mingled with the Precious Blood of Jesus ...
