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.

As Far As the East is From the West...

Sacred Scripture tells us that "as far as the East is from the West, he has removed our transgressions from us." Can East and West could be any further apart from each other? Can we imagine the real possibility of being totally freed from the power and effect of sin in our lives?
The appearance of that bright and solitary star so many generations ago signaled that the God of the universe would break into our finite dimensions of time and space to enable us to experience Him eternally in His time and space. As the priest says in Mass before the consecration, "Jesus shared in our humanity that we may share in his Divinity".
As the celebration of this season comes to a climax, we remind ourselves that God physically became present in the form of man to separate us from our sins and unite us once again to Him.
