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."

Rosary Rally Tonight at Our Lady of Mercy Parish - Redding CA


There are Over 4,000 Rosary Rallies Planned for October 10
Tonight at 6:00 pm in the Grotto at Our Lady of Mercy Parish in Redding CA

Ninety two years after the Marian apparitions in Fatima, Catholics in the United States are gearing up to commemorate the anniversary with over 4,000 public square rosary rallies.

America Needs Fatima is coordinating the event, set for noon local time on October 10, the Saturday closest to October 13, the day of the Miracle of the Sun.

“More than 4,000 Catholics have already volunteered to hold peaceful rosary rallies in their respective cities,” said Robert Ritchie, executive director of America Needs Fatima.

The Catholic group’s web site (http://www.anf.org/) offers material to start a rosary rally, such as posters, banners, leaflets and a detailed map that indicates rally locations by state and city.

“An amazing network is forming to honor the Mother of God and to pray for the conversion of America,” said Ritchie. “It’s important to remember that Our Lady of Fatima appeared asking mankind to stop offending God in order to avert punishment. She asked for prayer, penance and amendment of life. However, God continues to be offended. Just consider how abortion, pornography, blasphemy and sins against nature are so widespread.”

“If anything can reverse the moral crisis in society, it’s the power of the Rosary,” he said.
