Walking with St. Paul through Corinth; Great 1st Day of Pilgrimage Mediterranean Cruise
by Steve Ray on October 30, 2016
Today was our first full day of this pilgrimage cruise and we went to Corinth. I have to admit this is one of my favorite places because I wrote a Bible study on First and Second Corinthian’s and I feel like I’m walking with St. Paul and sharing my friend with everyone else while were here. Below the full day video is my Intro to Corinth which I gave before Mass.
Below you will find the full video of our day in Corinth and my introduction to Corinth before Mass. Here is the video of the excellent homily by Fr. Steve Mattson. Here is my talk at the Erastus Stone last year which I also gave again this year – for those who want to know why I am a Catholic and why the Bible it historically true!

It is such a blessing to be able to share in the pilgrimage that our son, Fr. Steve Mattson, is participating in at this time. I had just thought that I wished I had asked our son for a copy of the agenda so that we could in some way “know” where he is each day. You can imagine the jubilation I experienced when I went to my computer today and saw a message from Steve with a link to this blog. Not only can we “know” where he is but we can “see” where he is. Indeed, because of the internet we are also being given the ability to “share” in this wonderful pilgrimage. In many ways it is as if we are also “there”.
Thank you Steve and Al for offering and writing this blog so that many others can travel with you “On the Footprints of St. Paul.” It is a special blessing and gift of grace for us, as parents of Fr. Steve Mattson, to hear his homily given on such sacred ground.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you!
With much gratitude,
Mort and Jan Mattson
