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.

Chick Tracts and the Godfather Movie-Primers of the Catholic Faith?

"What more did I need to know about Catholicism? I'd read the Chick tracts, seen the Godfather."
Many folks who eschew Catholicism have little knowledge of what they are criticizing. Their decision to reject the Church and faith that Christ founded and still inhabits is often based on misconceptions fomented in an anti-Catholic upbringing. However, this convert went beyond his own prejudice after discovering that CS Lewis scholar and professor Peter Kreeft had converted to Catholicism.  How could a man this smart be a Catholic?”

Find out how an encounter with "a man this smart," Peter Kreeft, led a baptist to the Catholic faith. Read it here.

I overheard my son on the phone one day defending our Catholic beliefs. He said,

"No, no, Catholics don't believe that."

"No, no, Catholics don't believe that, either."

"No, really, Catholics don't believe stuff like that."

I am reminded of how Benedict the XVI was frequently taken out of context. It seems everyone continues to try to fit what the pope says into their mold instead of listening and being challenged to live their faith more deeply
