Boy do I have a story to share with you this episode! The Church is big and as it has grown it has encountered various cultures and practices. When it does this it does not come into a culture and destroy it, it seeks out the beauty of those cultures and integrates their practices with the Catholic faith. One example is the Native American practice of sweats.

Jerome Richter VP of Public Affairs at the University of Mary in Bismarck, ND tells us his experience in a sweat and how it united him in a lifelong brotherhood to a friend who became a priest. It was intense. 270 degrees of intense! Spiritually, it was an hour and a half of pure focus….pray or die!
