Mount Vesuvius & Pompeii

by Steve Ray on November 13, 2010

Incredible and expansive ruins of Roman Pompeii near modern Naples Italy. Mount Vesuvius blew it’s top five miles away and dumped over 15 feet of ash and pumice biting Pompeii in AD 79.

It is like stepping back 2,000 years and walking through a Roman city only 12 years after the martyrdom of Sts. Peter and Paul.

On our way to spend the night in Rome. It was another great day with no problems!

Tomorrow at noon we will pray the Angelus with Pope Benedict and receive his blessing.

Sick of Sloppy RCIA Materials?

by Steve Ray on November 13, 2010

screen-captureThe 60′s are over! All the watershed they left behind should be thrown away. You don’t have to have sloppy, watered-down, fuzzy, quasi-Catholic RCIA material any more.

The Association for Catechumenal Ministry has the best RCIA material around! And they’ve just launched a new blog at http://rciablog.com titled, “The Blog That’s All About RCIA,” this blog is meant to be a
free, practical tool for RCIA Leaders, Catechists, and Team Members.

Would you please help the Association spread the word about this? By the way, I am on their Board of Advisors.
