ironic

When Rocky and I visited the Amish Mennonite visitor center and took a tour of Amish farmland I was reminded of the old saying, "like priest, like people".

The Mennonites and Amish heresy began because a priest went bad and took a bunch of souls with him. I wonder if any Catholic priest has ever tried to seriously evangelize in Dutch country?

I don't know if anyone has tried...Though if I ever get the chance to be up there, I'd evangelize to the best of my abilities

On the way up or back, did you get a chance to stop by the Mother Seton Shine. I just got the chance to visit after 30 years. It was as beautiful as I remembered it.

Oh yes, we always stop at the shrine. It's a very precious place plus I like to look in on the convent to see if any of my old teachers are still alive and able to see visitors.
