From Fr. Delp's Diary, 2 January 1945
During the daytime I read a little Eckhart , the only one of my books I have managed to retain. The whole Eckhart question would be simpler if people remembered that he was a mystic and his mind and soul and spirit were always soaring into higher spheres. ...

From Alfred Delp's prison diary, 71 years ago today:

"Scarcely anyone can see, or even guess at, the connection between the corpse-strewn battlefields, the heaps of rubble we live in and the collapse of the spiritual cosmos of our views and principles, the tattered residue of our moral and religious convictions as revealed by our behavior."

His situation, as he awaited trial by the Nazis, was both radically different from ours and, yet, not so different.

From Fr. Delp's Diary, 29 December 1944
Far more than a civilization or a rich heritage was lost when the universal order went the way of medieval and ancient civilizations.  Western humanity today is spiritually homeless, naked and exposed.  The moment we start to be anything beyond "one of the ...

Pope Francis and Larry Arnn on Religious Liberty and Property Rights

Voices of Southern Dissent

I had a billing issue while staying here, but even apart from that, it's a mediocre hotel with a hefty price tag. My hotel room was fine, but nothing to get excited about. The low-flow toilet required two or three flushes to work. The nightstand had a gash in it, like someone had dropped it. One table had a short leg and rocked. The front desk wrote down the wrong internet access code so I had to call tech support to get the right one. I can live with any of that, but given how much the hotel charges, I'd expect more attention to detail. I traveled alone for business and booked my stay through the government employees travel website. The hotel's $30/night "resort fee" does not appear there. When I asked to have it removed I was told that it was not optional and is mentioned on the hotel's website. No one seemed to care that I had not booked through the hotel's website. Such hidden fees are dishonest and, given that one pays a high price for the room, not to mention parking, food, and taxes, it felt like salt on an open wound. I'll be telling my friends and colleagues to stay elsewhere. ***In response to Hilton's comment below, I called the hotel. After being mis-directed to billing, which gave me the party line, I reached a manager on a follow-up call. The resort fee was eventually dropped. I was thankful for the resolution, though wish there would have been greater clarity when I booked.***

This church is fantastic! The priests - members of the Dominican order - are superb in their knowledge of Scripture, insight into the spiritual life, and eloquence of preaching. The liturgy is beautifully celebrated according to the norms of the Catholic Church, including Gregorian chant at some of the masses. My family has benefited tremendously from the relationships we have formed here, particularly, in my wife's case, through the Charlottesville Catholic Moms. The parish is actively engaged in campus ministry but also includes many young families. Its various outreach projects include local charities as well as support to a parish in Haiti.

The technician came out to our home to change a windshield. Scheduling was very easy, he was on time, he explained the process, and was very friendly and professional. And he vacuumed the car when he was done. We'd highly recommend Safelite.
