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.

Eaglesmere, Pennsylvania

Eagles-mere is a tourist town located in the Endless Mountains of Sullivan County that we have gone to for years. It is a quaint little town called the "Town that Time Forgot." All these years we have been there and only recently noticed a little Catholic Church on the edge of town called St Francis of Assisi. We had the chance to go to Mass there and here are the pics below. It is a mission Church, meaning they only have Mass during the summer so we were blessed to hit it at the last Mass of the season! Wherever the sun sets in this world, you will find a Catholic Church.

I was married in a teeny Catholic Church like this in Clemson, SC. I like the contrast between these little churches and the bigness of The Church.

"you don't have to know the language to actively participate!!"

Yes! It's great! One year on a Mediterranean cruise, we had Masses onboard celebrated, lectored, sung, and prayed in English, Spanish, Tagalog, and Korean....all in the same Mass. It's amazing on cruises having Catholics from around the world come together at Mass. It really is a Universal Church.
