"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 to think about after San Bernardino ...

It was an office Christmas party.


"We are now standing in the face of the greatest historical confrontation humanity has ever experienced." - Karol Wojtyla"
We must prepare ourselves to suffer great trials before long, such as will demand of us a disposition to give up even life, and a total dedication to Christ and for Christ... With your and my prayer it is possible to mitigate this tribulation, but it is no longer possible to avert it, because only thus can the Church be effectively renewed. How many times has the renewal of the Church sprung from blood! This time, too, it will not be otherwise. We must be strong and prepared, and trust in Christ and His mother, and be very, very assiduous in praying the Rosary." - Karol Wojtyla

    1. Terry,

      It was confirmed early today that the San Bernardino shooter's wife had pledged her loyalty to ISIS hours before heading out to murder a group of innocent folk.

      We are only seeing the beginning, in my opinion and yet I cannot grasp it. It is all so unreal ... it is supposed to be on the other side of the world ... not here, an hour from home.

      Our Lady of Lepanto pray for us!
