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.

More Disaster in Haiti

Please keep the people of Haiti in your prayers. A school near Port-Au-Prince with 700 students collapsed today and they are trying to remove the survivors. When we were in Port-Au-Prince in August, between hurricanes, the priest pointed out a new church that had just been completed right next to St. Simon and St. Jude parish, where we will be doing a medical clinic in January. He said that the construction was exceedingly shoddy and the materials were suboptimal and he feared that it would be at risk for collapsing. The Haitian economy doesn't allow for high quality materials and architectural consultants when people need a new building. God have mercy on the brothers and sisters in Haiti. Our current economic problems pale in comparison to the horrific life they face every day, with no hope
for change. Check out the story.

Hail Mary,Full of Grace,The Lord is with thee.Blessed art thou among women,and blessed is the fruitof thy womb, Jesus.Holy Mary,Mother of God,pray for us sinners now,and at the hour of death.

Oh my! How comfy we are here... May the poor and afflicted be uplifted, and may God be glorified... May Christ be lifted up through these things. May peace come to these dear people and may their buildings be rebuilt.
