"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.

Oh, BTW: I'm following Pope Francis ...

Following him on his Apostolic visit to South America.

He is never far from Our Lady.

He also gets to drink Coca tea and Bolivia's Presidente Evo Morales gave him a bag of coca leaves.  That's sweet.

Some people are saying bad things about the Holy Father - but Our Lady is with him.

    I would like to think that Papa Panchito when his heart is burdened, he goes before her and she takes him in her precious arms and says these beautiful words to him.
    She then lifts him up, makes his paths straight again and sends him along his way, hand in hand with her glorious Son. Of course, she will call to San Jose to walk along with them as well.^^

    I remember reading that while St. JPII honored and loved our Lady as Queen, Papa Francisco is said to have a loving and very personal relationship with our Madrecita. He approaches her like he would his Mama. ^^

    1. I agree - I love that reminder from Our lady: Am I not here, I who am your mother?

    Great story, Terry. Amusing too. <3

  4. With what could be described as a rocky papacy, his Marian devotion has been a great consolation to me.
