When wondering, "Where did God go?"--consider:

Our lack of compassion, hardness of heart, and mercilessness towards others form an impenetrable curtain between ourselves and God. It is as if we had covered a plant with a black hood, and then complained because it died from lack of sunlight. Fr. Alexander Elchaninov, "The Diary of a Russian Priest," p. 58
