"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.

Something I said in an email ...



If I pay too much attention to church-talk I notice I begin to feel unsettled, and my devotion withers. Such conversations do not strengthen my faith. I have trouble with priests who encourage the idea that the pope is somehow undermining Catholic doctrine.

I think progressives and traditionalists have many things in common these days. Strange bedfellows.

  2. I agree. Let the bishops be the bishops, the priests be the priests, and let me worry about the tiny corner of the Kingdom that's been entrusted to me. Amen, Terry.
