Crossed The Tiber

An Evangelical Converts to Catholicism

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.

Advent Prayer

    Third Week of Advent Prayer
    (from Evangelical Catholicism)
    For Humility and an End to Materialism

    Dear Heavenly Father,
    As our hearts are evermore filled with joy
    as the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ
    approaches near,
    give us the perseverance
    to remain in your love
    during this season and not be blinded
    by consumerism and materialism
    that seems to be all around us.
    May we empty ourselves completely
    from our pride, banal concerns and desires,
    so that we may find in you
    the sweet freedom and joy we all long for.
    Grant this through your Son,
    Our Lord Jesus Christ, who lives
    and reigns with you and the Holy Spirit,
    one God, forever and ever.
