"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.

Feast of St. Paschal Baylon


This image by Murillo doesn't depict St. Paschal - but it could.



This is my saint Paschal.

St. Paschal pray for me - don't forget me.

I wait for you.

Don't forget me.

  2. In Spanish his name is San Pascual Bailón. Bailón was his family surname, but it also means "man very prone to dancing." You can imagine the images I had of the good saint as a child: always ready for a dance.
