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.

Catholicism and Miracles

After our appearance on the Journey Home program in 2007, I received an e mail from a person who assumed I didn't believe in God's power to heal anymore. Part of my reversion story involved the death of my first wife from a rare cancer. God chose to not heal her and began to open my heart and mind to the Catholic principle of redemptive suffering.  I wrote back explaining that the Church has always believed in miraculous healing and used documented healing as a way to assist in the canonization process of a saint.  I believe God still heals today, but in his time in his way at his choosing.  "Not my will, but thine."

 Here's a trailer for a new book on healing through the intercession of the saints.

I'm sorry---no one told you that you left Jesus' Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity. In 30 years, a daily communicant receives Him 10,950 times with Father's blessing. Wow! That's like saying no 10,950 times! ...happy you stopped. Welcome back.
