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.

Helpers of God's Precious Infants

PD and I went to Mass said by Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, this past Saturday in Bethlehem, PA. During this special Mass, he baptized two babies who were saved from death through the grace of God and the work of the Helpers of God's Precious Infants. This group has been praying outside the Allentown Abortion Mill for years now, once a month. These two women, whose children were baptized, decided not to abort their children as a result of the sidewalk counselors prayers and giving of pro-life literature.
This Mass was a confirmation to all involved in pro-life work that we must continue the efforts to promote life and support those who choose life. The pro-life movement crosses all theological and denominational boundaries and it is one of the few areas that Catholics and Protestants can work side-by-side for the Kingdom of God. May God continue to bless the ministry of Father Pavone and the Helpers of God's Precious Infants.
If praying outside an abortuary isn't your thing, there are many other ways to still support the pro-life movement. Writing to legislators, voting for pro-life candidates, using pro-life messages on your checks and address labels, explaining to your children that life begins at conception and ends at natural death, going to the March for Life in DC in January, volunteering at a Crisis Pregnancy Center and sending donations to the ministries involved in pro-life activities in your area.

Also, read about the link between contraception and abortion (as Pope Paul VI predicted in Humane Vitae in the 1960's)

I am a friend of Msgr. Philip J. Reilly (he married my wife and myself 5 years ago) and he is our spiritual adviser. I am also a webmaster for him and the admin of the Helpers page on Facebook.

Have you seen his endeavor to have the Catechism added to the Mass called "We Want To Be Taught!"? We appeared on EWTN last year to promote this endeavor.

We are petitioning the Pope to grant to us a Catechetical Lectionary. Last year, we heard back from Pope Francis' Secretary of State and he asked us to spread this to the Bishops.

Would you consider signing up and spreading this to your people??

There is a special section called "We Want To Teach!" for Bishops, priests, and seminarians.
