Crossed The Tiber

An Evangelical Converts to Catholicism

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.

USCCB Speaks Out On Embryonic Stem Cell Research

It is gratifying to see the Catholic Bishops coming together to make a statement regarding ESCR.

"The issue of stem cell research does not force us to choose between science and ethics,
much less between science and religion. It presents a choice as to how our society will pursue
scientific and medical progress. Will we ignore ethical norms and use some of the most
vulnerable human beings as objects, undermining the respect for human life that is at the
foundation of the healing arts? Such a course, even if it led to rapid technical progress, would be
a regress in our efforts to build a society that is fully human. Instead we must pursue progress in
ethically responsible ways that respect the dignity of each human being. Only this will produce
cures and treatments that everyone can live with."
