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.

"Never Too Late to Cross the Tiber"

(H/T to Barb Curtis at the Catholic Herald of Arlington) Leona Choy converted to Catholicism after a life time of being an evangelical missionary, writer, publisher and Christian radio station owner. She has written two books already in the short time she has been Catholic and has no intention of stopping any time soon. Her first book after her conversion was entitled Journey to the Land of More and the second was Treasures in the Land of More. What impresses me most about Leona is that she was willing to put leave the comfortable culture of a lifetime of evangelical Chrisianity to pursue what she became convinced was the truth. It all started with her research on the Church she undertook to dissuade a friend from being Catholic. Once again, when a person reads what the Church says about itself vs. what non-Catholics say about it, the wheels begin to spin and the heart is opened to the Spirit's prompting. Also impressive is Leona's use of social media and the Internet and her willingness to correspond with anyone who writes to her! Here's a link to her blog. Stop by and give a hearty welcome home to Leona and tell her I sent ya'.
