Fatima Group Arrived…and Here is the Video

by Steve Ray on September 16, 2013

The group of 71 pilgrims have arrived in Lisbon Portugal. Everyone made it safely with no mishaps, no lost luggage and everyone excited for this marvelous spiritual and cultural Catholic adventure! We are now in our elegant Hotel Santa Maria, five minute’s walk from the Shrine of Fatima. 

Tomorrow we begin with a tour of the shrine, a walk through the old town of Aljustrel with the three children lived, Mass at the Chapel where Mary first appeared, talk by Sr. Angela who is leading the cause of canonization of Francesco and Jucinta, then the evening prayers and procession at the Shrine. Thanks to Corporate Travel Service for handling all the travel arrangements.


My Grandpa is a Biblical Detective

Was there really a man named Jesus?
Or do the Catholics just try to tease us?
I went to the places,
Studied books for all traces,
And discovered he’s real which should please us.

A Limerick just sent to me from Darrell, a new convert, in response to the limerick I just posted:

There once was a man in much doubt,
What his Protestant faith was about.
Then a great guy named Steve
Helped the man to believe
In the Church that his Savior laid out.
