"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 see it.

Do you love me?

Every Sunday we profess our faith, and together in all the parishes throughout the archdiocese, even throughout the world, we confess:
I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.
Today I see it.  Despite all the apparent division there is something greater.

At morning prayer, I was impressed by the unity of the Church - all the different parts working as one ... even though there is dissent and apparent confusion.

Call me crazy.

There is no Greek or Jew, liberal or conservative,  gay or straight, male or female, slave or freeman - we really are all one in Christ Jesus...  We come from the same place, we're part of the same time, we all share the same Blood, we all have the same mind ...

I believe in one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church.
I confess one Baptism for the forgiveness of sins
and I look forward to the resurrection of the dead
and the life of the world to come. Amen.
