"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.

Alfred Delp is another model for those of us who resist.




More and more I am convinced that Catholics need to be in the forefront of the resistance to the immoral politics of the United States.

Catholics have the option to simply not vote for any candidate in an election where both candidates of both primary parties are odious to the conscience. This is not a decision to be taken lightly and it is one only that can only be justified after weighing the totality of the circumstances.

This should discount the canard that “failing to vote” will hand the election to one candidate who may be even more objectionable. This is often presented with the claim that if Catholics don’t vote for Trump, they are helping elect Clinton. That is false. - Source


Now is not the time for pretending.
