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.

A Pearl From Owen

"A convert / revert (to the Catholic faith) who has experienced what the world and or what non-Catholic Christianity, esp North American evangelicalism, has to offer says:
"no thanks, been there, done that and have several ragged I am looking for intimacy and a growing holiness with Christ through his sacraments given by his Church."
    That's the starting and central point. If true brotherhood and genuine community do not flow out of that they certainly are not going to be manufactured by some lesser means."

Owen Swain, former evangelical pastor, now Catholic artist, writer and catechist on commenting on the "fellowship and feeling-based experiences" of us former evangelicals.
