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.

Caro Cardo Salutis.

My priest friend Father Bernie recently sent me this quote of Tertullian, a second century Christian articulating the incarnation. (166-225 A.D)

Translation: The flesh ( of Christ) is the hinge of salvation.
In other words, if the Son of God would not have taken upon himself our human nature, we would not be saved. Father Bernie says "That's a lot of theology crammed into three little words! "
Amen brother!
What a great simple meditation as we approach Christmas day!
