And Catholic World Report profiled the late Russell Kirk, a convert and influential conservative intellectual.

ECUMENICAL/INTERFAITH NEWS

John L. Allen, Jr. looked at how the actions of the Patriarchate of Moscow might free up Catholic dialogue with the rest of the Orthodox Communion.

APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK

Mary Rezac looked at why Christians believe in resurrection, not reincarnation.

A Lutheran who’s beginning to ask questions about the Catholic Church, a recent convert trying to find steady employment, and all of our members who’re continuing to go through the RCIA process – 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!
