Our capacity for God

Though I enjoy nature, I remember my classmates in the seminary used to call me the “city boy.” I love the comfort of my own pillows in the air-conditioned room with the convenience of TV, computer and cell phone. But at the time, I was curious as to what it would be like for a city boy like me to go on a camping trip with a group of even more city people.

In light of this, our beliefs and practices as faithful Catholics are not things we put on or take off.
