"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.

"In the Via Crucis of an entire century, the figure of the Pope has a special role. In his arduous ascent of the mountain we can undoubtedly see a convergence of different Popes. Beginning from Pius X up to the present Pope, they all shared the sufferings of the century and strove to go forward through all the anguish along the path which leads to the Cross." - Fatima Secret-Message


  1. Love you Papa Francisco! I thank God nothing serious happened, at least I hope that is the case. I know he suffers from chronic sciatica and has pain, but he continues to inspire despite it as one can see in his way of walking.

    May the road of Calvary lead you straight to heaven and into your beloved Mamacita's arms. Amen.

  2. Gee, lighten up Terry. Are we not allowed a chuckle at this? This thurible got its revenge for all those Jesuits who've left them in broom cupboards for the past 50 years.

    Doesn't beat this one for mine. Billionaire Frank Lowy taking a dive after the winner's trophy eluded his grasp. "He sends the rich away empty..."
