Crossed The Tiber

An Evangelical Converts to Catholicism

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.

Solemnity of the Holy Trinity

Today the Church once again reminds the faithful of the mystery of the Trinity. Why does the Church need to have a solemnity of the Most Holy Trinity? Isn't it obvious that all the early believers understood the concept of one God in three persons? Historically, it turns out that the answer is no. The early Church Fathers instituted the Solemnity of the Holy Trinity as a response to the Arian heresy that was threatening to divide the early Church. Even before the Scriptures were canonized in the late fourth century, God was protecting the truths of our faith through the Church. The Nicean Council of 325 as well as this solemnity we celebrate today, are evidence to me, of the fulfillment of God's promise to lead us in all truth.

Thank you Lord for leading us in all Truth.

It's that "same page thing" once again, TJ.

Truth, once you taste it, you don't want anything less. Those who settle for less had better hope they're right. Life is short. Eternity, is one heckuva long time.
