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.

Happy Pentecost!

Today the Universal Church celebrates the feast of Pentecost, the birthday of the Church! The novena of the apostles and the Blessed Mother was completed and the Holy Spirit filled them with power from on high. Without the empowerment from the third person of the Trinity, the Church would not have grown but instead, have been still born. The Holy Spirit took an upper room of quaking, shaking downtrodden men and women and started a fire that has continued to burn for 2000 years. May we all continue to daily pray for the Holy Spirit's power to come upon us as He first did with the apostles.

Breathe into me, Holy Spirit, that my thoughts may all be holy. Move in me, Holy Spirit, that my work, too, may be holy. Attract my heart, Holy Spirit, that I may love only what is holy. Strengthen me, Holy Spirit, that I may defend all that is holy. Protect me, Holy Spirit, that I may always be holy. 
(Saint Augustine)
