Welcome to Catholic New York’s new blog – Footprints on the Journey! I’ve been a reporter for Catholic New York newspaper for four years—and many of my assignments put me in contact with young adults at different stages of belief. Some have just returned to the church, others want to deepen their faith, others feel a bit lost and still others are not sure what to believe.
Often, when speaking with people, and even in my own life, I am reminded of the poem “Footprints” in which a man is walking along the shore, and wonders where God is at various points in his life. No matter how many times I read it, when God in the poem responds that during the difficult times, “It was then that I carried you,” it really affects me.
I hope that with this blog—young adults at all stages in their journey—can come to realization that God really is there—even if you can’t see him.
I hope you continue reading so together we can create a virtual community that will together try to make sense of what’s going on in the Church, in New York, and in the world today.
