"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.

I could have seen the Doobie Brothers in Bayonne, but I journeyed on to Lourdes

I was invited to Paris too ...

Bayonne is a city in the Basque Country region of southwest France, where the Nive and Adour rivers meet. Narrow medieval streets characterize the old Grand Bayonne district. Here lie the Gothic-style Bayonne Cathedral, with its 13th-century cloister, and Château Vieux castle. Across the Nive river in the Petit Bayonne district is the Musée Basque, a museum devoted to the region’s arts, crafts and traditions.


  1. You made the best choice going to Lourdes!!...

  2. P. S. At first glance, I believed you meant Bayonne, Jersey City and then saw 'Lourdes' and saw my 'mistake'. Thanks very much for the great song by the 'Doobie Brothers'; those were the best melodies, in my opinion.

  3. "What did you go out into the wilderness to see?"
