"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.

  2. And not forgetting Francis Thompson's 'The Hound of Heaven' depiction of God as a dog hot on our self-destructive trail. That devoutly Catholic opium addict knew whereof he spoke.

    1. A consoling thought, The Hound of Heaven, especially when all I want to do these days is lay down and not get up again.
