"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.

Paris under siege. Blood in the streets. Terrorists.

Hostages taken, at least 60 dead, many wounded  ...
A Paris police official said there were at least 100 hostages in a Paris theater following shooting and explosions at two cites in the city. - Source
At least 30 people have died in a series of shootings and explosions across Paris carried out by men armed with Kalashnikovs and grenades. The motive remains unknown but many Parisians fear terrorists have again hit their city. - Source
Another terror strike in Paris, evoking prophecies of doom, while Europe is waking up to the immigrant crisis which many are now citing as an Islamic invasion.

Paris! Paris! Your enemies will reduce you to want, to hunger, to fear ... you will fall into the hands of foreigners. Your enemies standing afar off will behold your palaces in flames. Your homes will become a heap of ruins with the blood of your heroes who are no more. - Excerpt of a prophecy attributed to St. John Bosco

Prayers for the victims.  Pray.  Pray.  Pray.

People get ready ...

    1. My thoughts with the people of France. My prayers for all who were murdered, wounded. Prayers for the security teams, police, troops. May the French government wake up, say alert, protect her people.

  2. Terry,

    Elizabeth Scalia has a beautiful prayer with a litany of the great French Saints to be used as intercessory prayer as the events in Paris unfold. I printed it out and will be using it for prayer.

    1. Thank you so much for the prayer. Here's the link in case anyone else is interested: http://aleteia.org/2015/11/13/notre-dame-de-paris-pray-for-people-of-your-city/

  3. The death toll rising - the stories unbelievable.

  4. La lumière de Dieu nous entoure;
    L’amour de Dieu nous enveloppe;
    La puissance de Dieu nous protège;
    La présence de Dieu veille sur nous.
    Où que nous soyons, Dieu est là
