Crossed The Tiber

An Evangelical Converts to Catholicism

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.

Thanksgiving is Really A Catholic Holiday


Here's an interesting link my good friend Fr. Ezaki sent me. We often think of Thanksgiving as a pilgrim/puritan holiday, but check out this article. Looks like Squanto Crossed the Tiber before the Puritans could get to him!
Also, the Greek word Eucharist means Thanksgiving, referring to when Jesus took the bread in his hands and gave thanks and broke the bread and said "This is my body."
