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 Is Like Brushing Your Teeth

We all know how tarter and "stuff" can build on teeth from just eating, drinking, and just plain existing. It can only be removed by brushing your teeth.
Sin and negative "stuff" can build up on us by just existing in this world. However by prayer, acknowledging our failures, asking for help, experiencing true remorse, it can all be removed....
However, Mortal Sin, those acts that completely separate us from God warrant Confession....
One of the greatest healing sacraments that catholics possess is the freeing sacrament of confession........
Use it or lose it.... use it and you repair the disconnect, you repair the communion.
Don't use it, and you continue to fade away from God, his saving grace, you begin to lose all connection with him......
