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.

Catholicism The Series Premieres on EWTN

EWTN will be broadcasting 6 of the segments that were not shown on PBS. So you still have a chance to catch this awesome series. See the schedule here.

In a definitive interview with a major Catholic publication, Fr. Barron explained the impetus for this series.
“A year ago I was on a local Chicago news program and the opening [statement] was: ‘You represent the religion that has the worst public relations in the world.’ I said, ‘Yes, we have this problem, but I refuse to let 2,000 years of Catholicism be reduced to the sexual-abuse scandal. A handful of people did terrible things, but we have 2,000 years of beauty, art, architecture, liturgy and the saints. We have St. Thomas Aquinas, [Blessed] Mother Teresa, the Notre Dame Cathedral. I don’t want that reduced to the sexual-abuse scandal.’ I want our story told, and that’s a reason I did this.”

Being motivated makes things easier.

I don't get EWTN on the television. Do you know if we can watch it on the internet?

EWTN can be watched live on their website, at least in the U.S (and probably internationally, I would think).

Just go to the site, click on the "Television" link at the top of the page, drop down to the "Live TV" link, click on it, and choose whether you want to watch with "Flash" quality (best quality sound and picture, but it might be "too much" for some older computers) or regular quality. Then, start watching! It's the main way that I watch EWTN now, as I no longer have cable!
