Crossed The Tiber

An Evangelical Converts to Catholicism

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.

He Is Risen!

  We spent the past 40 days in penance (prayer, fasting, alms giving) preparing for the  Easter Triduum culminating in the celebration of his glorious resurrection.  Through the readings of scripture in daily mass since early March, the Church took us on a journey with Jesus climaxing in this Holy Week journey to Jerusalem. The Lamb of God that was to take away the sins of the world allowed himself to be raised up on a cross and ultimately bear the sins of humanity, past, present and future. He broke the bonds of sin and death by his resurrection. Death no longer holds power over us and has lost its sting. Satan loses and creation is redeemed!

The passion, death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ changes everything. 
Lord, grant me the grace to live out your passion, death and resurrection every day in my own life so that I can truly say: "Not my will , but yours be done."
