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.

Pray for the New Converts This Holy Week

As Holy Week brings Lent to a close, remember to pray for all the RCIA candidates who will be coming into full communion with the Catholic Church at the Easter Vigil. There is always a spiritual battle going on and our enemy will do anything to keep people from receiving all the grace of the sacraments this Easter Triduum.

Pray for those with doubts and fears and second thoughts.
Pray for those who will be losing friends and family as a result of joing the Catholic Church.
Pray for those who may be coming into the faith for convenience or necessity rather than conviction. Pray that the grace in baptism, confession, confirmation and most especially the Eucharist will kindle a fire of love for God in their hearts.

Dear Saint Peter, the fisher of men, pray for all those intending to join the Church this weekend. Amen

I suppose the not-so-new converts can use some prayers too. Seven years for me.
