"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 feast of St. Therese of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face

"Even if I had committed all possible crimes, I would still have the same confidence; I feel that this multitude of offenses would be like a drop of water thrown into the flaming furnace of God's love." - St. Therese


  1. I have to tell someone, Terry. It's 4:00 in the morning, and after months of praying for rain in our California drought I asked new St Junipero and St Therese to get together and surprise us. Got up, looked out the window and there are wonderful puddles outside the cathedral in the darkness. I cannot tell you the gifts, big and little, that Therese has obtained for me and of course millions of others. When the French are good, they are very, very good...but she's the best. Have a lovely feast, Terry, big hugs! Fr P

    1. Thanks Fr. Patrick! Happy feast day!

  2. Please pray for Shantel who entered the LA Carmel in mid Aug.
