"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.

Mass Murder - On Sunday Morning

Orlando gay bar shooting - at least 50 killed - story here.

Just came online - just read the news.  The suspect is dead - he may or may not be connected to ISIS - it appears to be an act of terror.  ISIS reportedly made threats 3 days ago.  The story is developing.

If it is confirmed as terrorism, I'm surprised it hasn't happened before - gay clubs are pretty soft targets.  At 2 AM chances are that many people might be fairly inebriated - unprepared for death.

Prayers for the victims - the dead and the wounded and their families.



  1. I read an article early this morning that had no information about the shooter do had been wondering if it was an act of terror.

  2. Oh my Jesus, forgive us our sins and save us from the fires of hell. Lead all souls to Heaven, especially those in need of thy mercy. Amen.

  3. It may not be popular - but pray for the shooter as well. His act was evil incarnate, but he was a deluded and sick man, and Jesus Christ died for him as well.

    1. That borders on heroic charity. Thanks for the reminder.
