"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.

St. Paul of Thebes

How to be a hermit ...

Remove all your clothes and furnishings, empty all of your bins, and walk away...

Take nothing with you.


"When, stripped of everything, you can only see in the world an unfurnished house, and in yourself total poverty with no facade, think of those shadowy eyes open in the center of your soul and fixed on things that are beyond all words, for the Kingdom of heaven is yours." - Madeleine Delbrel
