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."

Prayer

How often do you talk to God.
Does he walk with you throughout your day?
What really is prayer?


I love how Saint Thérèse de Lisieux describes prayer:

"For me, prayer is a surge of the heart; it is a simple look turned toward Heaven, it is a cry of recognition and of love, embracing both trial and joy; in a word, something noble, supernatural, which enlarges my soul and unites it to God.... I have not the courage to look through books for beautiful prayers.... I do as a child who has not learned to read, I just tell our Lord all that I want and He understands."

To experience God in your life you must first meet him and get to know Him.

How does one develop a relationship with someone?

We must spend time with that person.

Are you spending enough time with Him?

Deacon Pat,

I was working when two parishoners invited me out to church. I am sad to say that I was not able to make Mass, but one had told me you were giving a homily, and I was glad to hear and now read about your continued journey.

God bless you,
Keith
