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.

Why The Incarnation Means So Much

By his incarnation the Son of God has united himself in some fashion with every human being. This saving event reveals to humanity not only the boundless love of God who "so loved the world that he gave his only Son" (Jn 3:16), but also the incomparable value of every human person.

The first sentence is a quote from Vatican II's Gaudium et Spes. It, along with the rest, is found at Priests For Life.

Well, I did a Google search. I'm not THAT good! ;)

Although, to be honest, at first it sounded like something I had written a week or so ago:

"Christ's universal kingship has two implications: 1) his kingdom is open to all, and 2) all people are subject to him. ... Thus, each person is connected to Jesus Christ, whether through his Church or not, and this because through the Gospel we are taught that in ministering to any person in their need, we are in fact ministering to Christ."
