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.

Anglican Parish Becomes Catholic


In Towson Maryland this weekend, an entire Anglican parish came into communion with the Catholic faith under the Anglican Ordinariate. The Anglican church began as a result of a king choosing immorality over the truth. He beheaded Saint Thomas More for not approving of his divorce. Also on this past Sunday, we celebrated the feast of Saint John the Baptist who was also beheaded for speaking the truth to another king for who choose immorality over truth.

 "Liberal stances by Anglican leaders, particularly Episcopalians, have driven some clergy and members to the Roman Catholic Church. But Meeks, who studied to become a Catholic priest as a young man, speaks not of rejection but of reunification — becoming one with the "authentic apostolic authority" of the church that dates back 2,000 years."


"Most of us come from a church that could literally not say what it believed," sait Steenson, a former Episcopal bishop. "What is remarkable about the church you are joining is you will never be left in doubt again."

This is amazing! Surely God was smiling on this moment of Christian unification.
