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 (Orthodox) Catholics

After the 1960's the church took a major shift toward liberalism. It (liberalism) infected the seminaries and produced priests with a very liberal slant.
The pendulum is now swinging back to the center and appears to be resting in a more conservative / orthodox / traditional place.
The liberal priests are now in their 60's and 70's, if not already retired, and the new priests are much more traditional.
Even the vocations to religious life are booming in the orthodox orders and other more liberal orders seem to be dying off.
And what about our current Pope, can you say Orthodox.
I love our church.
