Alfred Delp. S.J

"Whoever doesn't have the courage to make history is doomed to become its object. We have to take action" Alfred Delp. S.J

"If there was a little more light and truth in the world through one human being, his life has had meaning." Alfred Delp. S.J

Just started reading an amazing book by Alfred Delp. S.J. [see link in sidebar], which includes a long and [of course] insightful introduction by Thomas Merton. Delp was executed by the Nazis for standing up to their tyranny. Although written over 60 years ago, his writing is prophetically relevant to our contemporary situation. I left the book in the car and it's gone for now, but I'll try to type some excerpts in when i get it back.
