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.

Fortnight For Freedom

For the next two weeks from June 21st until July 4th the Catholic Church in the United States is sponsoring a 2 week period of prayer and fasting for religious freedom in our country. This prayer vigil will start on the vigil of the feast of Saint's Thomas More and John Fisher, both beheaded for their religious beliefs in 17th century England and will conclude on July 4th, the birthday of our freedom as a nation. The current administration has pursued and ongoing attack on religious freedom and the Church is calling us to do what Christians have done for 2000 years- fast and pray and cry for God's mercy. Check with your local diocese to find out what activities they will be having and make a commitment to fast and pray. People of all faiths are encouraged to join their prayers with ours as we plead with God for our rights of religious liberty to not be stolen from us.
