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.

Little Sisters of The Poor

While on the March for Life on Monday, we ran into a group of nuns called the Little Sisters of the Poor. Their vocation is to care for the poor elderly. Their motto is "We beg for the poor so they won't have to." They love Jesus and as they care for the poor, they are "doing unto Him." They take in and care for elderly people of all faiths who have no place to live. They are not government funded and the sisters trust God for all their needs. Each day, they go out to different merchants and vendors and beg for bread, meat and donations to feed the residents in their facility. Their homes are now in 31 countries and their mission goes back to France in 1839 with their founder Jeanne Jugan taking a poor blind elderly woman into her home.
Pray for the Sisters and if you are so led, send them a few quid to continue their ministry. Supporting folks like these is a tangible way of spreading the Gospel of Life.
