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.

Come Let Us Go Into The House Of the Lord

Over the Labor Day weekend, we were able to get away for a couple of days to one of our favorite spots in northeastern PA, Sullivan County. Before we were Catholic, if we were away on a Sunday, we didn't attempt to find a church because we would likely not find one that shared the same theology we did, or had the same style of worship. One of the many "fringe benefits" of being Catholic is the ability to almost always find a Mass some where in the vicinity of where you are traveling to. The concept of the universality of the Church really starts to make an impression on you when you travel. Here's some pics from a beautiful Church in a small town called Dushore. In particular I loved the way Holy Scripture is held in a prominent place in the front of the sanctuary

Lovely. Yes, it's great to attend Mass in different places; it's something we look forward to, and the net makes it easy to plan ahead.
Last summer we went to Mass in Helsinki at St. Henry's, a church established near the port for Catholic mariners. People from around the world were there...universal indeed.
