Welcome to our latest weekly roundup of original and curated Catholic content for converts and the curious!  Here’s a sampling of what we’ve been up to over the past few days at The Coming Home Network:

*****

Thank you to everyone who participated in our 15 day devotion to the Holy Name of Jesus for Christian unity!  We had strong participation, and look forward to next year’s campaign!

In our latest written conversion story, Jennifer Fulwiler discussed the role that Catholic moral teaching had on her decision to become Catholic.

For #ThrowbackThursday, we revisited our 1999 Journey Home episode with Rock and Roll Hall-of-Famer Dion Dimucci, whose hits include “The Wanderer” and “Runaround Sue,” where he talked about the events that led him to return to his Catholic faith.

And members and readers of the Coming Home Network weighed in on their favorite liturgies and liturgical seasons.

Meanwhile, around the web:

Pope Francis called Catholics and the Eastern Churches to work together for peace.

Alaine DeSantis discussed what to do when your “retreat high” comes to an end.

Msgr Charles Pope discussed what Christian tradition means by the word “mystery.”

Steven Bullivant wrote about what happened when a Catholic theologian was invited to visit an Evangelical megachurch.

And in their ongoing series, “50 Things That Made the Modern Economy,” the BBC wrote about the warrior monks who invented banking.
