Crossed The Tiber

An Evangelical Converts to Catholicism

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.

Reconciliation From A Former Pastor's Perspective

                                                           Original art by Owen Swain

Owen Swain, Canadian artist, blogger, catechist, writer and former evangelical pastor writes about the gift of forgiveness which Christ gave to His Church. As a pastor he had the nagging sense that he could not completely provide all that his parishioner was asking regarding forgiveness. In his own life, he sensed there was more to forgiveness than what he was experiencing. In the linked article he gives a very interesting perspective to the sacrament of penance/reconciliation based on his pastoral experience.
