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.

Happy 5th Anniversary To Our Holy Father

5 years ago today, the Holy Spirit worked through the college of cardinals to select our next pope. Just having come into the Catholic Church one year before, I sat fixed to the television watching the proceedings of Pope John Paul's funeral and the subsequent election of Pope Benedict XVI. I loved watching the ancient process unfold as Christ's promise to guide and lead His Church was fulfilled, in complete color on CNN!

I was especially moved by Joseph Ratzinger's humility and his willingness to obey God by accepting the Fisherman's Ring when he really just wished to retire and read and play his beloved Mozart on the piano. This election was very special to me and "Room of Tears" resulted from this. Once again I post the video of my first version of Room of Tears. Also, in honor of Pope Benedict's special day today, I am offering a free download of Room of Tears here. It is the new version with bass guitar added and re-mastered on my new CD. Please keep him in your prayers as you listen to the song or watch the video.

Love this song and video. Thanks! I will send your link to my Catholic study ladies! (just sent them your previous entry)
My favorite picture was the one of all the priests rejoicing when the new pope was announced.

I am the leader of three organizations. It is a huge effort, responsibility, and shall I say, burden. Thanks for recognizing our Holy Father's leadership sacrifice.
