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.

A Shepherd Cares for His Sheep

Pope Benedict is praying for the Anglican Communion. He is praying that there will be no further rifts and divisions particularly with this week's upcoming Lambeth Council promising to be a humdinger.

Schism has always been a feared threat to the Church and many of the early Church fathers spoke about schism and did what they could to avert it. Pope Benedict, like other popes before him, is sensitive to the possibility of schism.

Some may say that the Pope is not the shepherd of the Anglicans but I believe he is functioning in his role as shepherd of the Church Universal looking out for all the sheep, even ones not necessarily in the fold....yet.
