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."

Traditional Catholic Theology on Origins

I was recently asked if I knew of a good book that could describe the creation theology of the Fathers and Doctors of the Church.
I inquired as to a good referral source from an educated friend and he mentioned that this book is great.
Book Description:
Today the Catholic Church has well-developed theologies of redemption and sanctification but no well-developed theology of creation.
That is because so many of her influential thinkers have abandoned the sound creation theology of the Fathers and Doctors of the Church and have embraced instead the false principles of evolutionism.
The purpose of this book is to help restore traditional Catholic theology on origins to its rightful place in the belief of Catholics.
The traditional teaching of the Church on Creation, the Fall, and the Great Flood and its aftermath is clearly presented in the form of sixteen doctrines abstracted from the text of Genesis 1-11.
The doctrines are defended on theological, philosophical and scientific grounds from assaults made on them from the sectors of biblical criticism and scientism.
The author attempts to present a story of origins that evokes true and vivid images of the creation of the world and the primal history of the human species.
Accurate, thorough and readable answers are given to many questions about origins that perplex the modern Catholic.
The exposition is kept as non-technical as possible so that the book will be accessible to everyone. Not everyone will be able to understand everything that is presented, but every reader will find enough to set his thinking straight and to nourish his Catholic faith.

Foreword by Most. Rev. Robert Francis Vasa, Bishop of Baker
