In a new article for our blog, Marcus Grodi responded to a common concern from non-Catholic Christians, who wonder if their Catholic friends will ever say “enough is enough,” and leave the Church.

We published online the conversion story of Sil Cunha, a former Seventh Day Adventist from Brazil who shares how grace opened her heart to follow Christ into the Catholic Church.

And in his ongoing article series on atheism, Ken Hensley argued that if there is no God, even what appears to be logic is nothing more than mechanical processes.

A member overwhelmed with all the new information they’re receiving in RCIA, an inquirer who feels they’re being given misinformation about Catholic teaching from a Church they’re visiting, and another member trying to better understand the Communion of Saints – 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!
