"Are we prepared to promote conditions in which the living contact with God can be reestablished? For our lives today have become godless to the point of complete vacuity. God is no longer with us in the conscious sense of the word. He is denied, ignored, excluded from every claim to have a part in our daily life." - Alfred Delp, S.J.

Year of Faith - Year of the Cruise!

Catholic Answers Apologetics Cruise...  November 2 to November 9 2013.

Looks like a trend.

  2. CA had been doing annual cruises before I first heard of them fifteen years ago.

  3. This sort of thing has been going on for years (and the fees are higher than CMTV's retreat)--which is why I find it so odd that people are bashing CMTV & Fr. Z for being part of one of their own. Why not also accuse Tim Staples, Patrick Madrid, Fr. Larry Richards, et al. while you're at it?

    1. Nobody's bashing V and Z for going on a cruise. It's their timing that's being questioned; Lent is a time of penance.

    2. Nan - I think the idea of a retreat on a cruise line is a problem.

      Apologetics seminars - maybe - it's still religion as a business.
