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.

Feast of the Holy Innocents

Today the Church celebrates the lives of those young children in Bethlehem who were slaughtered by order of Herod as he attempted to thwart the will of God and kill the King of Kings. (Matt 2:16-18) The Church has celebrated this feast since the 6th century and continues to this day to remind the faithful of the sacredness of  human life.  Despite this, 2000 years later,  parents willingly bring their children to the executioners sword (abortionist's suction curette), instead of being wrested out of their hands as in the days of Herod. By the Church's celebration of this feast, our minds and hearts are once again brought to contemplate the implications of the slaughter of innocent children who did nothing to deserve that violent fate.

Let us continue to pray and act to end the slaughter of the innocents that continues in our day through abortion. Pray for the parents of the unborn that God will open their eyes to see the value of the life that they have been entrusted with. Let us also continue to pray for those who have participated in abortion, parents, clinic employees and physicians. Let us pray for a just society that will provide for the needs of un-wed mothers and families.
