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.

Another Abortion Worker Comes Home

It all started with Norma McCorvey , the Roe in Roe vs Wade. She eventually converted to evangelicalism and finally found her way to the Catholic faith.
Then the conversion of PP clinic manager Abby Johnson, now pro life activist with an apostolate to abortion clinic workers. Then the story of Jewel Green from a clinic that I have marched outside of in  Allentown Pennsylvania.
Here's her story.
Bryan Kemper, founder of Pro-Life group Stand True was a refomed Christian and joined the faith last year, now partnering with Fr. Frank Pavone.  Dave Armstrong, writer and apologist began his journey to the Catholic faith after spending time in jail with Catholic pro-life activists.  What is it about the  pro-life movement and message that brings people to the Catholic faith?  It's hard to say, but I suspect that the issues of human life are best articulated by the Catholic faith, and pro-life Catholics tend to live the tenets of the faith in a way that truly appeals to the person of good will open to pursuing truth.

Hilaire Belloc said this:  "In proportion as men know less and less of the subject . . . they attempt some simple definition of the mind which ultimately accepts Catholicism. They will call it a desire for security; or an attraction of the senses . . . A very little experience of typical converts in our time makes nonsense of such theories. Men and women enter by every conceivable gate, after every conceivable process of slow intellectual examination, of shock, of vision, of moral trial . . .

The Church is the natural home of the Human Spirit. The truth is that if you seek for an explanation of the phenomenon of conversion under any system which bases that
phenomenon on illusion, you arrive at no answer to your question."  (H/t Dave Armstrong)
