Well, here we are again… here’s another jam-packed weekly roundup of original and curated Catholic content for converts and the curious:
This week’s Journey Home guest was Paul Bennett, who told Marcus that coming to terms with his alcoholism was the first major step on his journey of faith.
On our latest Deep in Scripture podcast, Marcus talked to Dan Burke from the Avila Institute about Jesus’ words in John 14:21, where He tells us that those who love Him keep His commandments.
CHNetwork pastoral outreach team member Ken Hensley continued his series for Catholic Answers, “Why I’m Catholic: Sola Scriptura isn’t Historical, Part II.”
For #ThrowbackThursday, we shared a Journey Home episode from Marcus’ 2006 trip to Ireland, when he interviewed former IRA militant Mark Lenaghan about his reversion to the Catholic Church.
And members of the CHNetwork Community shared advice for those who experience loneliness on their journey towards the Catholic Church.
Elsewhere, around the web:
The Catholic Herald (UK) shared the little known story of the REAL Blessed Lucy of Narnia, whose feast day was this week.
Archbishop Charles Chaput of Philadelphia shared some thoughts on how to heal our sexually broken culture. Meanwhile, Jimmy Akin contended that it’s not the Church, but the culture, that’s obsessed with sex.
At the National Catholic Register, Stephanie Mann shared thoughts about how Catholics should think about the troubling reign of “Bloody Mary.”
Casey Philips shared advice for converts to Catholicism who find themselves bored at Mass.
And Amazon Prime released a commercial featuring a priest and an imam that looked like something The Coming Home Network could have helped create.
