"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.

Today is the feast of Beato Guido di Pietro ...



AKA Fra Giovanni da Fiesole ...

Best known as Fra Angelico.

His miracle?

His work ... he was beatified on the basis of the angelic, nearly divine beauty of his paintings:
Angelico was reported to say "He who does Christ's work must stay with Christ always". This motto earned him the epithet "Blessed Angelico", because of the perfect integrity of his life and the almost divine beauty of the images he painted, to a superlative extent those of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
— Pope John Paul II

Blessed Angelico, pray for us who try to paint heavenly things, pray for us to attain perfect integrity of life.
