"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.

In Memoriam Cecil





In Memoriam Cecil


+
One day from out of the vast, trackless desert a proud lion 
appeared suddenly before Gerasimos’ cell. 
The great beast approached the hermit, 
bowed his tawny head and held out a huge paw.
The desert lion had come to stay. 
He joined the tiny,
 isolated community which consisted of the saint, 
a disciple and a donkey. 
Guided by the saintly hermit, 
man and beast lived together
 in perfect peace and harmony.
