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.

Speaking the Truth From the Land Down Under

Cardinal Pell has warned Australian Catholic politicians for the second time that receiving the Eucharist and voting for embryonic stem cell research are not compatible. The Catholic Church supports adult stem cell research but holds that the in-vitro creation and experimentation on human embryo's is an affront to life itself in its earliest stages and needs to prohibited.

"All Catholics who continue to reject important Catholic teachings, even in areas such as sexuality, family, marriage, abortion, euthanasia, cloning where 'liberals' claim the primacy of conscience rules, should expect to be confronted, gently and consistently, rather than comforted and encouraged in their wrongdoing."

Thank God for shepherds in the Church who aren't afraid of warning the flock in order to save souls, regardless of the "political correctness." Let's keep Cardinal Pell in our prayers as well as the politicians who find it easy to disobey their own faith's teachings.
