"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.

Pope Francis leads the Rosary for Italian earthquake victims ...

Much to pray for.

The victims of earthquakes in Italy and Myanmar, as well as those suffering from the floods in Louisiana, those suffering loss to the wild fires in the west.

So many to pray for.

Madonna delle Grazie, Amatrice

"The town is no more." - Sergio Pirozzi, Mayor of Amatrice

Pray the rosary every day.


  1. Reports are coming in that more than 120 have been killed from the earthquake so far but many are reported to be unaccounted for, including children.


    I went to bed thinking about earthquakes since I live in earthquake country, near to large fault lines, the Whittier and Long Beach are big as are the ones found in the Antelope Valley.

    Prayers for those suffering in Italy and elsewhere.


    Let's pray too the the American University in Kabul which is currently under attack with many students reporting they are trapped.

    1. Drone captures Italy quake destruction


    2. Thanks - I didn't know about the situation in Kabul!

      I know you are in earthquake country.

    3. Thanks - I didn't know about the situation in Kabul!

      I know you are in earthquake country.
