Crossed The Tiber

An Evangelical Converts to Catholicism

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.

Happy Father's Day

St. Joseph is the patron saint of father's and families. This prayer is over 1900 years old

O St. Joseph whose protection is so great, so strong, so prompt before the Throne of God, I place in you all my interests and desires. O St. Joseph do assist me by your powerful intercession and obtain for me from your Divine Son all spiritual blessings through Jesus Christ, Our Lord; so that having engaged here below your Heavenly power I may offer my Thanksgiving and Homage to the most Loving of Fathers. O St. Joseph, I never weary contemplating you and Jesus asleep in your arms. I dare not approach while He reposes near your heart. Press him in my name and kiss His fine Head for me, and ask Him to return the Kiss when I draw my dying breath. St. Joseph, Patron of departing souls, pray for us. Amen.

We can also turn to St. Joseph , most chaste spouse of the Virgin Mary, and ask his intercession to keep us chaste and holy moral guardians of our family. Today would be a great day to ask his intercession for moral purity in our households and to install some internet accountability software on our computers as a way of putting feet on our prayers!

Joseph is my middle name given at Baptism so I have a particular devotion to his intercession for me.

I recommend Covenant Eyes (I work for them). Its a very robust program that has a separate accountability service and filter service. Check it out!

Thanks for your comments about the church and the need for putting feet to our prayers!
