Camino De Santiago

Along with a group very special friends, my brother Tim, and two Priests, we will be walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain beginning in August. Please friend me "Deacon Pat Kearns" on Facebook to follow the journey. I realize with limited internet, Facebook will be the easiest way to share the journey. I will share more on the blog when I return. I am also looking forward to using the experience in the current novel I am work on "Climbing Out of the Darkness."

Living a life in fear...

I met this young photographer (Theodore Rigby) when I was Guatemala this past year. I just remembered that he gave me his card, so I looked in my wallet and found it.

I looked up his site and found this great video about an illegally immigrated family.

I don't support illegal immigration.

However, Illegal immigrants are not just illegal immigrants, they are people: Mothers, Fathers, Sisters, Brothers, Aunts, Uncles, etc.

They want to be loved, they want a chance,

they want to feed their families,

they want to be able to sleep at night knowing that their children are safe.
In so many ways they are not unlike us at all, just born outside the US.

My Catholic Faith tells me to care for the Sick, Poor, Widowed, Imprisoned, the Alien, etc....

My love and care for a person is not centered on a specific act or action completed by that person, but rather for the person as a whole.

Don't you hope that if we are judged by someone or something,

we are seen for who we are as a person,

and not just judged by a few of our actions.

The dignity of the person should always be the foremost standard when dealing with everyone that we meet.

Don't you agree?
