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.

The Power of Organized Religion

With Jeff Bethke's recent "I hate religion" new religion sweeping the evangelical world, Eve Mercer from Catholics Are Christians makes an excellent point about the benefits of an "organized religion":

"Not to re-hash the whole "I Hate Religion" issue, but just a late night thought after watching a day of news. America is about to see what organized religion in this country can do. No denomination has the kind of clout or cohesion to do what the USCCB (Organization of Catholic Bishops) is going to do in standing up to this administration on the HHS Mandate. It is the organization and authority of the Catholic Church that will be taking a stand for the religious freedoms and liberty of all Americans. I pray that all of America will see this, and hearts and minds will be more open to what the Catholic Church truly stands for. And thank you to people of all faiths who are standing behind us Catholics during this time of persecution."
