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.

Suffering Brings An Evangelical Into the Catholic Church

On Why I'm Catholic, Laura tells the story of her son's Tourette's syndrome diagnosis and how it ultimately lead to her decision to become Catholic. This story resonates with me as it was ultimately suffering in our lives that brought us to see the beauty of the Catholic faith.
She said it was CS Lewis comment "Pain removes the veil. It plants the flag of truth within the fortress of a rebel soul." that started her journey. Well then, Lewis lead to GK Chesterton and you know the rest of the story!
