Crossed The Tiber

An Evangelical Converts to Catholicism

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.

The Cure Of Ars

Yesterday the Church celebrated the 150th anniversary of the death of Saint John Vianney, the Cure of Ars. Known for spending up to 16 hours per day hearing confessions, he was responsible for a spiritual awakening in his rural area of France in the 19th century. He is the patron saint of parish priests and Pope Benedict has invoked his intercessions for the Year of the Priest.
