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 St. Augustine Day!

St Augustine is one of my favorite saints and I have asked him repeatedly over the past 6 years for his intercession. He found the Lord later in his life, but he sure did make up for lost time! A Priest, A Bishop, Doctor of the Church and master-slayer of heresies. He single-handedly defeated montanism, manicheanism, pelagianism and other heresies of his time.
I relate to him in an analogous way. Late have I found the Catholic Church, a beauty so ancient, yet ever new.
Here's a live video I made for today's feast of St. Augustine.

"British Cardinal Hume...said that the life of St. Augustine proves that all saints have pasts and all sinners futures."

Mel:
thanks for your kind words. BTW, if you download the song or CD, all proceeds got to our Haiti Medical Mission (no pressure :)
Yes it can be a very long journey.

Please E mail or write anytime if you need anything.

You may want to check out Called to Conversion blog by a group of mostly reformed Christians who have made the journey or are in process.

God bless
