"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.

Prayer unites us.


This past weekend, Mrs. Obama and her daughters lighted candles at Milan's cathedral for the Mother Emmanuel Ninevictims in the Charleston, South Carolina shooting.

United in prayer.

  1. . What doesn't make sense is the religion, age and sex of most victims....in terms of a white murdererous youth fearing that blacks were taking over the country. The logical target would be younger black males with power...either physical or economic. This was evil and stupid simultaneously. I would have preferred that Mrs. Obama included in her prayers the 43 blacks killed by other blacks this May after the riot events effectively disengaged the police from making arrests. Last week in Jersey City, an elderly black woman was shot in the back by a stray bullet in the worst neighborhood...Martin Luther King Drive. She fell to the ground and then was robbed by passersby of that area...her own people. The Obamas will miss a great opportunity if they never mention during their tenure the group who is most assaulting innocent blacks...non innocent blacks.

    1. Can you imagine if they dare tell the truth? I have always been under the impression that one of the reasons Obama was sent and resent to the White House was his support and opinions that black people are victims of the "System."

    2. Look closer. Actually Obama is against the black criminal element and in at least one speech said. "no excuses" several times...meaning the slavery card is wearing thin and doesn 't explain felons who haven't worked two years in a row let alone been enslaved. It is an area of culture wherein silence rages in both groups except for Mayor Guiliani and black Tommy Sotomayor on youtube....a black anti black who goes too far but often hits some important points that no white could say verbally without being villified. Obama gained many votes I think on getting out of Iraq which is like a black hole in space. It's hopeless because it's three countries and eventually will become three. Enough US men have lost their legs to the hopeless morass which is the mideast cesspool.

  2. Baltimore was where the riots and subsequent 43 murders took place.
