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.

Joan of Arc of the Gospel of Life- Nellie Gray RIP

Nellie Gray (1924-2012) Catholic convert, lawyer and WW2 veteran was the founder and leader of the Annual National Right to Life March on Washington DC.  She was the voice and inspiration for the pro-life movement and actually inspired Fr. Frank Pavone's vocation.  Cardinal Sean O'Malley referred to her as the "Joan of Arc" of the Gospel of Life.  We had seen her at several Marches for Life and I was always impressed that an elderly and physically diminutive woman could stand all day in front of a massive crowd on the Mall in Washington, often in the worst weather. Nellie, pray for us that we will continue to stand up for life and press on until Roe v Wade is overturned in this country.

Eternal rest grant unto her, O Lord.
And let perpetual light shine upon her.
May she rest in peace. Amen
