I flew out for El Salvador with several other ND students this (I think it’s still Thursday) morning about 5am. We’re here to study both the history of the Church in El Salvador and the preferential option for the poor as it works in base communities on the ground. While I am here for the next few days, I’m trying (the operative word there is try) to blog some of my experiences as a sort of mystagogical discipline, engaging some raw reflections on my experiences during the trip. I imagine other days will be slightly busier than this one later in the day, but hopefully I will carve out a few moments each evening for a posting.
