"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.

  2. Remind me why your home and garden aren't features on "Lifestyles of the Devoutly Religious".

  3. I love this shrine! Devotion to The Holy Face is the answer to the evils of the world. Have you noticed how often Pope Francis refers to The Face of Jesus? You are abosutely right about him. He is a Good Shepherd! (I made a blog just for the devotion to the Holy Face if you would like to look: Illuminadomine.wordpress.com I'm not much of a writer, but it's from the heart.) +Peace in Him
