Called to be More highlights -- #11

Highlight #11 – Theological conversations.

I joked during the trip that in order to be a chaperone it was necessary to have a Ph.D. in theology. The pilgrims had intense questions about so many aspects of the faith – liturgy, morality, prayer, the saints, Church history, spirituality, growing in virtue. Long walks and breaks in the bus allowed for plenty of time to discuss the beauty of the faith, with teens learning from other teens, teens learning from adults, and adults learning from teens as well. The fruits of conversations were often shared with others at a later period, affording another opportunity to consider newfound knowledge.

Some of the pilgrims commented that the time for conversations about the faith with people they trusted was an invaluable aspect of the trip.
