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."

The News Media

The Media must be used to build up and sustain the human community in its different sectors: economic, political, cultural, educational and religious.
The information provided by the media is at the service of the common good.
Society has the right to information based on truth, freedom, justice and solidarity.
The essential question is whether the current information system is contributing to the betterment of the human person; that is, does it make people more spiritually mature, more aware of the dignity of their humanity, more responsible or more open to others, in particular to the neediest and the weakest.

I heard on the news today that the San Francisco Chronicle has been losing Millions of Dollars for some time.
Do you think the people have realized that the Paper has not been at the service of the common good, rather supporting an agenda.........
