The CHNetwork Weekly Roundup #147

March 29, 2019 No Comments

Got a question about the Catholic Church, or need assistance on your journey? Consider becoming a member, or feel free to contact us for more information.  The Coming Home Network exists to help converts, reverts, those on the journey, and those who are just curious – we’d love to hear from you!

*****

On this week’s episode of The Journey Home, Steve Faulkner shared the fascinating story of how trying to re-create the early Church from scratch led him to Catholicism, and also talked about his adventure tracing the steps of French Jesuit explorers of the Mississippi River.

We released a great new Insights video short with Sr. Theresa Aletheia Noble, who shared how beauty helped lead her to God, even when her reason wouldn’t accept arguments for His existence.

We published the digital version of Keith Albert Little’s path from Canada’s United Church to the Catholic Church. 

And we’re almost full for our Spring CHNetwork retreat! If you’re a convert or someone on the journey looking for a great time of fellowship, prayer and encouragement, visit chnetwork.org/retreats for more information.

Meanwhile, around the web…

CONVERTS AND CONVERSION

The movie Unplanned opens this weekend, and Marcel Lejeune shared what he learned about evangelization by helping Abby Johnson and her family through the RCIA process.

Catholic World Report reviewed three recent memoirs about conversion.

And Morocco’s Christians, many of them converts, are hoping that an upcoming visit by Pope Francis will advance the cause of religious freedom in their country.

APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK

Charles Johnston looked at the Biblical foundations of the Hail Mary.

And Deacon Steven Greydanus looked why Catholics must evangelize, even though God can save whomever He wishes, in whatever way He wishes.

AND A NERDY TOLKIEN TIDBIT…

We shared a post explaining why J.R.R. Tolkien set the date for the destruction of the One Ring on March 25, the Feast of the Annunciation.

A woman who wants to enter the Church but is having some health problems, a member torn between their conviction to become Catholic and their love for their current ministry, and all our members in RCIA who are just a few weeks away from entering into full communion with the Catholic Church – 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!
