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.

Young Evangelicals Converting to Catholicism.

I found this interesting article highlighting the increasing number of young evangelical Christians who are discovering the roots of their faith and converting to Catholicism. The author interviews students from King's College, a traditional evangelical college in NYC.
Once again, the discovery of Church history (before 1517) plays an important part in the conversion process.

A very good article indeed, though one mistake -- Patrick Madrid is not a convert.

yes, Jeff , I caught that too. Maybe because PAtrick edited Surprised By Truth, he just assumed he too was a convert. Thanks for stopping by!

Well I am far from young,but I converted at the Easter Vigil Mass in 2004, at the age of 48. The traditions and the teachings of the Church are what made me feel "at home". I just wish I hadn't found the true Church so late.

Great article - It looks like I'm in excellent company, as a former Evangelical myself, although I didn't know it so much at the time I converted. It thrills me everytime I hear of so many finding their way Home.
