Crossed The Tiber

An Evangelical Converts to Catholicism

My Photo
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.

No Such Thing As A Small Murder

"The duty to respect the dignity of each human being, in whose nature the image of the Creator is reflected, means in consequence that the person can not be disposed of at will. As far as the right to life is concerned, we must denounce its widespread violation in our society: alongside the victims of armed
conflicts, terrorism and the different forms of violence, there are the silent deaths caused by hunger, abortion, experimentation on human embryos and euthanasia.
How can we fail to see in all this an attack on peace? Abortion and embryonic experimentation constitute a direct denial of that attitude of acceptance of others which is indispensable for establishing lasting relationships of peace." Pope Benedict 16

Thank you, TJ for these photos. They're so powerful and moving and the words of Mother Teresa... how can that not touch the heart of anyone? Hardened hearts we must pray for, that Divine Mercy would be sought and not run from as so many do. Reading the diary of Sr. Faustina has caused me to be so humbled, to furn to the Mercy of God being poured But one day, the Mercy fountain will stop flowing and when the sky grows dark and the cross appears in the sky with the light of judgment shining through the nail pierced hands and feet of our Lord, I can only pray that many will turn now and receive the Mercy extended, because that day will either be a glorious day, or a day of complete and terrible doom for those who've chosen darkness rather than Light. Thanks again for these wonderful thoughts and photos.

I for one don't know how our God waits...and waits...but I do know it's his Mother's pleading and intercession for the world that is keeping that terrible day at bay.

There's so much innocent blood on our hands. The nearly 50 million aborted babies are only those that were aborted and kept on record, how many more were sloughed off by the deadly "Pill" and other contraceptive means? My heart grieves but I'm not grieving one fraction the grief of our Blessed Mother and the Holy Spirit... God...have mercy.
