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."

Family and the Holidays

 
I am not a real Fan of Dolly, but the song speaks words of wisdom.
.
With so much pain and suffering in the world, the holiday time should be set aside for families to gather, rejoice in their bonds, love each other, and share in their common experiences. There are many families who have fought, who have not acted kindly to each other, and hold strong grudges. Yet, all can be forgiven. Isn't that the message of Christ.

Sometimes it takes just one person to set aside who was "Right" and just move on. It just takes one step to begin the process of healing. Often the most stubborn has the most hurt, carries the most sin, and often cannot feel Christ's love at all in their life. 

Maybe you can be Chrsit to that family member this Thanksgiving and Christmas Season.
