The front page of The Michigan Catholic features a story called, “Faith on Fire.” I was hoping the link would be updated, but it isn’t, so I’ll relate the first few paragraphs.
Who says Catholics don’t hold revivals? Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish in the souther Monroe County town of Temperance held one last Saturday that drew about 200 people for an afternoon of prayer, preaching, personal testimony, and praise.
“I figured the thing to do was hold a revival, because we have to revive this parish,” said Fr. Dan Nusbaum, who returned to his hometown about a year ago to become pastor of Our Lady of Mount Carmel.
Fr. Nusbaum, who has spent most of his priestly ministry as a seminary and university professor, said he found the parish to be “still hurting” from some past events.
The article goes on to profile the speakers and the musicians (Mount Carmel’s own church band and the folk band from the First Church of the Nazarene in Temperance) It continues…
The revival conclude with the traditional “altar call,” with Fr. Nusbaum inviting people to come forward and lay their burdens before the Lord.
Am I wrong to be upset about the blurring of the line between Fundamentalist Protestantism and Catholicism?
Page 2 of the TMC has a picture of a priest celebrating “Mass on the Beach” in Malibu. Where are we going now?
