"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.

The Penitent St. Jerome

The old man beat his breast with a rock
in penance for being a jerk 
and his sins of the tongue.

What heavy handed Catholic writers and apologists and bloggers could learn from this guy...

Whether people read us or not - we will all be judged on every word we say or write.


  1. Is that Faye Dunaway? I may have spelled her name wrong but boy was she a great actress in her prime, I am sure you know she converted to the Faith and is a daily Mass goer since then at least that's what I remember reading long ago. ^^

    I am caught up with Downton Abbey after having watched the first two episodes of the final season. Still one on my all time favorite shows. The clothes are just fabulous.

    I am rambling I know but well, after midnite on the West Coast and had to give my support to the great St. Jerome since I relate to him. I am trying to rid my tongue too of gossip and chismes and rumores. It is a challenge especially since my poor mom and tias love it too. I even remember my grandmother engaging in the neighborhood gossip and boy did we learn lots. ^^ Ah!

    Probably old gossip by now except it seems to be true ... it seems Papa Francis met with Kim Davis. WOW!

  3. I remember Belinda always said we'd be judged on every website we visited. Or something like that...
