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.

Start Your Novena Engines

Today marks the ninth day before Christmas. Prodigal Daughter reminded me this morning that she is going to begin a novena (9 days of focused prayer) for our family events during the holidays.
So here's my reminder for you as well and here's a great novena from EWTN's site.
The Christmas novena has always been part of Catholic culture and is a way for the family, the domestic church, to prepare for the coming of the savior in our hearts, and ward off the distractions of this materialistic culture. This is our fifth "Catholic Christmas" and we continue to be so grateful for the way God uses the Church in our lives to focus on Him, particularly at the holidays.

Thanks TJ!!

I didn't know that there was a Christmas Novena...

I printed it out, I'm sure it will help me to focus on what's most important for the next few days.
