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.

What Would You Have Written on the Pope's Cast?


Pope Benedict had his cast and pins removed from his right wrist. Hopefully he will be able to play piano again. Even more importantly, he will be able to catch up on his writing which he does all by hand! Actually, he has been using a digital recorder to work on his sequel to Jesus of Nazareth.

I wonder, what would you write if you had been able to sign the Pope's cast?

Carpe Diem! No particular reason. . . I just always liked the saying.

I would have been torn between writng somethin' spiritual vs musical, because I do know what it is like as a musician to lose the use of your hands.

In 1972, as a freshman in highschool, I broke both my foreams simultaneously! That Christmas my parents gave me a mandolin which I stared at for 8 weeks until the casts came off. Ouch! There's other things you can't do with both arms broke too, which I can't talk about on this blog.

So I can empathize with the holy Father and the feelings that went through his mind staring at the piano for 6 weeks.
