"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.

He has made me eat gravel ...

trampled me into the dust ...

I had rather one day in your courts
than a thousand elsewhere;
I had rather lie abject at the threshold of the house of my God
than dwell in the tents of the wicked. - Ps. 84

To put one’s mouth in the dust
there may yet be hope ...
To offer one’s cheek to be struck,
to be filled with disgrace. - Lamentation 3
