Crossed The Tiber

An Evangelical Converts to Catholicism

My Photo
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.

Gifts From Friends

Check out the wonderful art from two of our friends in the blogosphere, (and real world too)

The first is from Owen Swain and is a piece I commissioned him to draw. I just received it in the mail this Saturday. It is beautiful, and it represents the Trinity. Owen was a Protestant pastor for over 20 years who has always been an artist. Since his conversion to Catholicism he is hoping to pay the bills through his art. He does work by request and his prices are extremely reasonable!

The second piece I received unexpectedly from George over at the Path of Weis. A custom Gibson guitar. Check out the inlay crosses on the neck and Mary's image on the pic guard.
You can see it better by clicking on the pic below to enlarge.
Thanks guys!
