The Conspiracy of Catholicity.

There is a grace about Rome, one that defies the centuries and the never ending attempts of darkness to overcome the light.  Even when the marble columns will have cracked and fallen to sand, the spiritual pillars of Catholic truth, drenched in the blood of the martyrs and more eloquent than that of Abel, will continue to proclaim the victory of the Lamb.  It has been a privilege for me to experience again that grace of being in Rome and of praying here, at the foot of the Apostles, for all the monks of Our Lady of Clear Creek and for all the friends of Clear Creek Abbey.
