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.

Reason #735 To Be Catholic: Public Worship Is All About Jesus

That is just one of my many Reasons To Be Catholic. I love the Mass so much because there is very little opportunity for individuals to inject his personal agenda, pride, spiritual mojo or whatever. Even the celebrant (Priest) is ordered by the liturgy and doesn't own it. The Mass is all about Jesus and the opportunity to unite ourselves and our sufferings to Him, offering ourselves to Him. This is reasonable worship*. It is not about how we look, or how we are made to feel or  how we "appear" to express our devotion to God in the eyes of others.

*I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.(Rom. 12;1)
