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.

Haiti Bound Again

My wife and I and a small group from our parish are leaving for Cap-Haitien tomorrow. We will be working with the Missionaries of the Poor in Northern Haiti. This is the first time we have worked outside of Port Au Prince and we are looking forward to this new experience. The brothers there run a home for disabled children as well as a home/hospice for the elderly and a food distribution ministry. We are not sure yet where they will have us work us but we look forward to spending a week  participating in their spiritual life, daily Mass, praying the Liturgy of the Hours with them and especially serving Jesus in the poor.
   A bonus is that Lent begins this upcoming week and we are thankful to the Lord to be able to spend the first week in Haiti.  As always, I ask my faithful readers to keep us and the people of Haiti in your prayers, and perhaps offer up your fast on Ash Wednesday for us. Thanks so much!
