So it is true. The Voris/Fr. Z retreat at sea I mean.
Remember a few years back when Fr. Z was writing about cruise line chaplains and other forms of employment? Or was it about Celebrity Cruises excluding priests as chaplains?
I'm just saying.

Thursday Morning Update: Looks as if I'm not the only one who thinks the retreat is strange.** Read it here - Catholic In Brooklyn. (Excellent blog BTW - never heard of the blog until today.)
**This is what I find strange about the 'Retreat':
- The "retreat" is on a luxury cruise ship amidst hundreds of vacationers - during Lent.
- It is promoted as a Year of Faith retreat sponsored by a lay organization of Catholics - it is not even an official Church sponsored retreat as far as I know.
- It is such an unwise move for Fr. Z it is not funny - not good for the resume. I think it safe to say Voris is pretty much a persona non grata with many bishops, dioceses, not to mention the USCCB.

Friday Morning Update: Crescat has a post on the retreat as well - bonus feature: Church Militant Video Promo - check it out on "We've Officially Jumped the Shark".
