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.

El Camino del Santiago - The Way of Saint James

The Way of Saint James is a pilgrimage route dating to the 8th century where pilgrims travel by foot across Europe to Northern Spain to end in the Cathedral that holds the remains of St. James the Apostle.  This pilgrimage is so popular that in the summer, alternate routes have been mapped out to accommodate the large number of pilgrims.
  A group of young people are currently traveling the northern part of Spain starting in Galicia and walking the 100 mile pilgrimage in 5 days. They are led by the bishop of Denver and will end their journey in Madrid for the start of World Youth Day.  Seth DeMoor of One Billion Stories is documenting it all and posting daily video here.  Pray for the pilgrims that they will receive all the graces that are available to them in such an endeavor and that their feet will hold up until the end of the journey!
