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.

Catholics Come Home For Christmas



The Catholics Come Home campaign is pulling out all the stops this Christmas and Advent season to bring American  Catholics  back to the Church. It has taken over 15 years but this organization has amassed 3.5 million dollars from the contributions of over 35,000 Catholics committed to seeing their lapsed Catholic neighbors and families return to the One, Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church.
   It is estimated that 10 % of Americans are former Catholics. The Catholics Come Home folks have put together 30 second spots on major media markets that will air from Dec 16th -January 8th. It is estimated that 250 million potential viewers will see these short ads played on 60 Minutes,  NCIS and other prime time programs. This is probably the largest evangelization campaign the Church has taken part in in 2000 years!

See the Fox News story about the campaign here, and pray about sending a few quid to Catholics Come Home to support this most worthy and important endeavor.

Those ads are outstanding! I really should add one to my blog--maybe every Catholic blogger should.
