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.

Media Coverage of Our New Bishop

In Allentown, the Morning Call newspaper had the bishop's ordination and installation as front page news. In bold letters it quoted him:

''Now is the time for evangelization, using every means of modern technology at our disposal to spread the Gospel."

This media coverage of the ordination in and of itself is a gospel witness. The world sees that the Church Christ established continues to go about its business of making disciples of men, ordaining presbyters(priests) and bishops by the laying on of hands.(1 Tim)
Watching the video here was very moving for me as I saw the almost 2000 year old process unfold.

they really did a nice job covering the ordination. The oil dripping down his head is so "biblical" isn't?
