This week’s Journey Home episode was with Dan Burke, a convert from Judaism, Evangelicalism and Anglicanism who was recently named president of EWTN News.

CHNetwork members and readers shared what they love about being Catholic, despite all the discouraging headlines of late.

Our latest Signposts video is with Jay Richards, who came to an intellectual understanding of the Real Presence that affected his relationship with Jesus in a whole new way.

On the latest Deep in Scripture podcast, Marcus Grodi looked at the “miracle within a miracle” in Mark 5.

And Ken Hensley continued his series on sharing the Gospel with atheists and agnostics, looking at the difficulty atheists have when it comes to the worth of human life.

A convert who’s struggling with loneliness as a new Catholic, a member attending an anti-Catholic university who’s wondering how starting RCIA might affect her studies, and several members who are interested in the Church but concerned about the scandals – these are just a few examples of the people we are praying for and working with this month at The Coming Home Network International. Please help us continue to support those on the journey by visiting chnetwork.org/donate today!
