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.

The Bishop and Me

Tonight at the 6 PM Vigil Mass, our bishop, John Barres, came to our parish in Orefield to say Mass. He heard confessions both before and after Mass. His homily was about the link between St Stephen's martyrdom and St Paul's Damascus Road conversion. How we witness by our lives and actions can have major ramifications in other's life "down the road."
We are blessed to have such an awesome shepherd! I suspect we will see many more vocations in the upcoming years because of his priestly and fatherly example.

one of the youngest to be ordained. I think he is 48. He was one of just a handful of bishops nationally who did not have his diocese contribute to the USCCB's CCHD that had contributed to some not so great organizations(acorn etc)
