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.

THANK YOU! WOW! What a beautiful song...I've always been a Clapton fan, and how much more, just to hear this. He's one gifted soul! Thanks TJ! and Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners now and at the hour of our death. Amen. ~ PAX

I sent this to Mike Aquilina, and he wrote back this:

I've always liked that song. He wrote it for Richard Manuel of The Band, after Manuel's suicide. Very sad. May he rest in peace. Interesting that when Pavarotti sang "Holy Mother," he changed the lyric. The Eyetalian's version is the orthodox one.

Good ol' Mike - he knows about most everything under the sun! I'm always so glad to hear from him! He's incredible!

Actually, Susie, he DEDICATED it to Richard Manuel of The Band on his album, August, but he wrote it for himself. At a moment in his life when he had hit rock bottom...after doing a concert in Toronto and drinking heavily.
