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.

Peter Bringing People Back Into the Barque

There is a news report here that suggests that since Pope Francis has been elected, certain countries such as Britain are seeing a surge in mass attendance (20% increase) and return to the confessional.   It's hard to know for sure given the main stream media's accuracy, but let's hope and pray that the Holy Spirit through Peter keeps bringing folks into the barque. Regardless of the criticism against Pope Francis by those inside and outside the Church, a return to the sacraments is always a sign of revival and can't be argued with.

The Barque of Peter is an ancient symbol of the Church  because as the first pope he was also a fisherman, now fishing for men.

We compare the Bark of Peter to the Mayflower in Sunday School.
