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.

I have been inspired by some other bloggers to lay off the blogging a little bit during Lent. Sometimes I mistakenly start to think it's more important to get my thoughts "out there" which precludes Him getting His thoughts "In here."
I would ask for your prayers as I leave for my almost annual short term medical mission in Port-Au-Prince from March 1-10. It is a great opportunity for penance as well as ministering to Jesus through the poorest of the poor. These folks are truly "the least of these." There's no better season of the year to do this! I am looking forward to this as a great time of renewal. The team always asks us to get ten people to commit to praying for us while we are there. I ask my Catholic/Christian blogospherians to do this for me, if you are led to. I would appreciate it.

Prayer requests:
  • That I can be effective in diagnosing and treating many diseases without any tests, labs etc
  • That the team is protected from the kidnappings that are rampant where we work
  • That I can be an effective witness for Christ and His Church
Thanks so much!
I refer you to Prodigal Daughter's blog Mystery of Suffering for her posts on the Stations of the Cross
God bless you.

If anything, I may be blogging a little more during Lent, as my primary Lenten fast is from the hell-o-vision. It's already feeling very quiet in my house!

Will be praying for your Haiti trip...

May our Father in heaven keep you safely in His will and bless the efforts of your mission trip.

May you bring the peace of Christ with you, and may it remain long after you leave.

May the Holy Spirit guide your mind in wisdom and your hands in healing.


I'll be praying for you.

May Mother Mary wrap her mantle of love and protection around you and all your team, and your family while you're away.

Peace of Christ,

You're in my prayers, and I just posted a link on my blog to offer something more.

God bless you! I wish I could go...I used to be trained as an EMT and Ski Patrol (similar, OEC training, same level medically). Any use for me? LOL
