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."

Words Have Meaning

During my diaconal ordination, Bishop Weigand gave me the following instruction from the Ordination Rite as together we gripped the Book of the Gospels:

"Receive the Gospel of Christ, whose herald you now are.

Believe what you read.

Teach what you believe.

Practice what you teach."

This words are forever impressed into my being.

I so often reflect on these words and try to evaluate if I am living up to my promise.
Do you ever think about your life? Your Promises?
Marriage promises......
Promises to you children......
Promises at work....
Promises to your spouse....
Promises to you parents......
Promises to your friends and neighbors......
Promises to yourself.......
