Crossed The Tiber

An Evangelical Converts to Catholicism

My Photo
Name:
Location: Pennsylvania, United States

I was born into the Catholic faith. At 14, I was "born again" and found Jesus personally but lost His Church. After thirty years as an evangelical protestant, I have come full circle to find that He has been there all the time, in the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. I wish others to find the beauty and truth of the Catholic faith as I have found.

Wiki B-Day Meme

St. Jimbob of the Apocalypse tagged me with this:

Wiki B-Day Meme

Three events:
1922 Formation of the USSR
1953 First Color TV sold in US for $1,175
1972 US halts heavy bombing in Vietnam
Two Birthdays:
John Hartford 1937-2001 Tugboat captain and folk musician extraordinaire. One of my inspirations as a young musician. Wrote "Gentle on My Mind" made famous by Glenn Campbell. The song broke all rules of songwriting with no chorus , just one verse after another!
Died of lymphoma. Perhaps one of the best banjo players in the world.
Noel Paul Stookey 1937 (Peter Paul and Mary) Wrote the infamous "Wedding Song"
Had a conversion experience to Christianity in the late 70's.
One Death: 1519 -1591 Pope Innocent IX Was present at the Council of Trent . His pontificate lasted two months.
One Holiday: 6th Day of Christmas (I love the way Catholicism keeps the beauty and wonder of this HolyDay well into January!)


Rules:1) Go to Wikipedia
2) In the search box, type your birth month and day but not the year.
3) List three events that happened on your birthday
4) List two important birthdays and one death
5) One holiday or observance (if any)

I tag "La Vie Catholique"

So, I guess that you've seen many geese a-laying on your birthdays. I've got two siblings with birthdays in the week preceeding Christmas, and I've always wondered if their birthdays felt a little overlooked in the splendor of Christmas.

Yeah, as a kid, the birthday was always a little more subdued, however, it gave me another reason to get excited again, 5 days later after the new toys were broken and the pieces were lost to the games. I had a nice B day cake and one gift to look forward to!
