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.

The Children of Mary?

                                          Where are Jesus' brothers and sisters at a time like this?

When your Protestant friends bring up the "fact" that Mary had other children because the bible tells me so, ask them to check out the early Church fathers. Ooops, too Catholic! Well then, just ask them to check out the writings of their founders, Calvin, Luther, Wesley etc. They all held to the perpetual virginity of Mary and were very Protestant.

Go here to read an excellent cogent defense of the Blessed Mother's perpetual virginity.

I particularly enjoy reading about all the nieces and nephews of Jesus, and all those people who now can claim him as a great, great, great, great, great, great... uncle.
