4 Mile Run thru Pune India – Amazing

by Steve Ray on January 15, 2011

Today I took off tuning thru the city of Pune. The GPS struggled since the is no 3G and spotty Internet access. I also took lots of pictures and videos.

It is a different, exotic, interesting place. Since putting this video up I have been to other areas of India and India has a great diversity of lifestyles and scenery. After having visited Goa it is clear that many parts of India a wealthy and on the move. Much is changing here. The people I am dealing with here are wonderful and successful people.

Sacred cows, cats with rats, Muslims, Hindus, Christians – mosques, temple and churches. It’s another world. I love being here sharing the truth of the Catholic faith and sharing the adventures with you. It is a great adventure being here.

Just posted a Running trip, “2011-01-15 Pune India”, to @everytrail. Check it out here: here.

Hi, Steve,

I attended your program in Pune on 16/01/11 at St.Ignatius Church. It was a real enlightenment for me concerning the two strengths of our Roman Catholics.i.e the Euchrist and Mother Mary. Good research done by your family. May God continue to bless you in all your efforts to take this message throughout the glob.
One clarrification required is, as for as the statues in the church are concerned is OK, but what is your opinion on kissing the statues.
Thanks and Regards
Prasad Rao

STEVE RAY HERE. I HAVE NO PROBLEM WITH KISSING A STATUE ANY MORE THAN KISSING A PICTURE OF MY WIFE AND KIDS. AS LONG AS ONE REMEMBERS THE STATUE IS ONLY A REPRESENTATION AND NOTHING MAGICAL. IF THE KISS IS A SIGN OF LOVE AND RESPECT FOR THE PERSON IT REPRESENTS.

Prasad’s question is very pertinent and experiencial to our situation, Steve’s answer too is so practical. That’s what we Catholic supposed to keep in mind when we kiss the statues of Mary or other saints.
Fr. Peter Fernandes,
