A Catholic priest has come to grips with the fact that the internet has changed his wife.
The Rev. Robert M. O’Sullivan, who has been a Catholic priest for more than 30 years, recently returned to the United States to live with his parents.
But he’s also faced the problem of not knowing the best way to teach his flock, who have changed their religious affiliation.
“There are a lot of things that are really difficult,” O’Connell said.
“But I do know I can be my best at teaching my people and I can get things done, and I have been able to do that because I have not changed.”
O’Sullivan said that he learned early on that the best ways to teach people were to focus on their individual faith, not on their relationship to religion.
He said the internet is the perfect way to do this because it can bring people together.
“It’s really, really easy to use the internet to share your story,” he said.
“People can see how others are feeling, how you are feeling.
There’s nothing stopping you from talking about your feelings.”
Omer and Mary O’Bryan have lived in the U.S. for more then a decade.
They say the internet helped them connect and communicate with people in other parts of the world.
“We’re not in the habit of sharing our life story in public, so when people have this opportunity to talk about it, that’s a really powerful thing,” Mary O’,Bryan said.
The O’Brienns have lived together for about six years and said they have no plans to return to Ireland.
“My hope is that we’ll continue to live in Ireland and we’ll share the things we’ve learned and what we know about our faith and love and all of the things that have shaped who we are and who we love and who our family is,” Omer said.
