Here is what a recent pilgrim had to say about our annual Holy Land pilgrimage!

 Thank you for a most wonderful, spiritual experience these past 2 weeks. The pilgrimage surpassed any expectations I had. Your teachings, Jeff, were so meaningful at each site. You are able to pull together all the history, the spirituality, the geography of the area, the archeological aspects, etc. so well to make the whole story make sense. You have challenged us to grow spiritually not only with questions to ask ourselves, but ways to ponder those question in our lives, and the wonderful "weapons" we have to tackle them, grow from them, and make necessary changes in our lives so that we may be better disciples of the Lord and spread the Good News to others. Certainly my times in adoration, and daily prayer will be enriched because of this Holy Land experience. ~~ Barb K

FOCUS: Missionary Katie Martinson!

Many of you have or know of young people who will be going off to college next fall. It is in college that young people are searching for who they will become in life. In this video blog I talk to FOCUS missionary Katie Martinson who is currently reaching out to young people at the University of Wisconsin, Madison. FOCUS stands for Fellowship of Catholic University Students.

Started back in 1998 by Curtis Martin, it shines as one of the outstanding college outreaches today. I'm sharing this with you with the hopes that you will support Katie and other FOCUS missionaries who are giving two years of their lives to change the world. The FOCUS website is www.focusonline.org and Katie's email is kmartinson@focusonline.org. Once you go to the FOCUS website you can see a list of all the FOCUS missionaries that could use your support. I pray that lives will change as a result of the efforts of young people like Katie.


Do you have a question about Catholicism?

Jeff Cavins question mark One of the purposes of this blog is to provide you with some good materials that will help you understand the Catholic faith better. I would like your opinion on something. What area of your spiritual life do you want to learn more about? In other words what topics or teachings do you think you are weak in and would like to learn more about? For example, a man came up to me this last week and said, "I don't know what is happening during the mass with all the movement and prayers." Someone else may not know what the role of the bishop or pope is. I'm gathering some data for some upcoming articles on what Catholics want to know about their faith.
