Got a question about the Catholic Church, or need assistance on your journey? Consider becoming a member, or feel free to contact us for more information.  The Coming Home Network exists to help converts, reverts, those on the journey, and those who are just curious – we’d love to hear from you!

*****

This week’s Journey Home episode was with Kendra Clark, who shared her path from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints to the Catholic Church.

In our newest Signposts video short, Sr. Maria Theotokos shares her journey from agnosticism back to her Catholic faith and into religious life.

In an article for the CHNetwork Blog, Ken Hensley looks at what the Bible itself has to say about the doctrine of sola Scriptura.

And we uploaded another video from our 2008 Deep in History conference: this time, with Sr. Rosalind Moss, who looked at the history and consequences of denominationalism in the United States.

Meanwhile, around the web…

CONVERTS AND CONVERSION

The Catholic Star Herald recounted the story of a South Jersey 6th grader’s conversion to the Catholic faith.

And the Catholic Herald (UK) reviewed Fr. Donald Haggerty’s recent book on conversion.

ECUMENICAL/INTERFAITH ITEMS OF INTEREST

Catholic and Russian Orthodox leaders announced they’d be gathering together on the 2-year anniversary of a historic meeting between Pope Francis and Patriarch Kirill.

And Msgr Charles Pope gave a brief overview of the 1000 year-old split between Catholics and Orthodox.

APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK

At the National Catholic Register, Dave Armstrong compared Martin Luther’s doctrine of sola gratia with what the Catholic Church teaches about grace.

Philip Kosloski looked at how the 7 Deadly Sins can be fought by employing the opposing virtues.

And recent Journey Home guest Mosongo Osong launched CatholicBrain, a catechetical tool that involves videos, articles, and even trivia to help people learn more about their Catholic faith.

AND SOME CATHOLIC OLYMPIC ANGLES…

Trent Beattie interviewed bobsledding gold medalist Curt Tomasevicz about his Catholic faith, and the Vatican sent a delegation to the Winter Olympic Opening Ceremonies.

A convert who’s just made her first Confession, a couple preparing to be received into the Church in a couple of weeks, and a member worried about a friend who’s involved in the occult  – these are just a few examples of the people we are praying for this month at The Coming Home Network International. Please help us continue to support those on the journey by visiting chnetwork.org/donate today!

“If I were to meet the slave-traders who kidnapped me and even those who tortured me, I would kneel and kiss their hands, for if that did not happen, I would not be a Christian and Religious today.”
