This collection of essays is drawn from Marcus Grodi’s published columns in the Coming Home Network International’s newsletter and in The Catholic Answer magazine. His thoughts provide wisdom and strength for those who are exploring the claims of the Catholic Church, those who are on the path to the Church, and those who have already entered the Church yet need encouragement. Lifelong Catholics will also find the book useful in helping friends and family members they hope will someday come home.
