On this week’s episode of The Journey Home, Chris Padgett gave a lively account of his journey from Evangelical protestantism to the Catholic Church, which involved lots of reading and a few trips to a monastery.

We released a powerful new Insights video short, in which John Knutsen shares how he went from being an angry atheist to a joyful Catholic.

In our latest Deep in Scripture podcast, Marcus and JonMarc Grodi discussed I Corinthians 13 and the sacrificial nature of love.

And now is the time to let us know if you’re interested in joining Marcus Grodi, Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson and Ken Hensley on our Deep in History pilgrimage to Italy! For more information, visit CHNetwork.org/pilgrimages.

Matt D’Antuono shared why he was willing to lose his job at a private Evangelical Christian school by becoming Catholic.

The National Catholic Register looked at a series of stories involving Muslims who became Catholic.

And Catholic convert Brandon Vogt shared why he’s staying in the Catholic Church despite the sex abuse crisis.

APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK

An inquirer who’s interested in the Church but increasingly mistrustful of Her clergy, a convert who because of the scandals is considering sedevacantism, and a former pastor looking for employment that will line up with his gifts and calling – 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!
