This week’s Journey Home episode was with Dr. Diego Ospina, who was part of Pentecostal and Mormon congregations before returning to the Catholic Church.

Ahead of Mother’s Day, our latest Insights video is with Alexandra Kogan, who shares how understanding Catholic teaching on the dignity of women was part of what drew her to the Church.

Our newest written conversion story comes from Rob Marco, who explored Buddhism and Straight Edge moral philosophy before finding spiritual fulfillment in the Catholic Church.

We launched the first ever CHNetwork interactive live stream on our YouTube channel, and looked at how the prayer lives of converts have been affected by becoming Catholic. You’re invited to join the next live stream on Wednesday, May 16 at 3:00 PM Eastern time.

Charles Hoffman continued his article series on Mary from a Jewish convert’s perspective, focusing on the Annunciation and the Visitation.

And we made available another online video from our Deep in History archives: this time, it’s a 2010 talk from Bruce Sullivan on the inerrancy of Scripture.

Meanwhile, around the web…

APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK

A convert whose husband has begun to consider the Church, a professor at an Evangelical college who’s worried that becoming Catholic could ruin her career, and a member who dropped out of RCIA in the Spring but is considering giving it another shot  – 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!
