For #NationalNursesDay, this week’s episode of The Journey Home was an encore of our conversation with Renee Hendrix, a NICU nurse whose work with medically vulnerable infants brought her in touch with Catholic families, who in turn led her to the Eucharist.

In a new Signposts video short, Fr. Sebastian White, O.P. shared his journey from “a” church to The Church.

And ahead of our upcoming one-day CHNetwork Retreat at her National Shrine, Matt Swaim looked at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton as a model for converts looking to use their gifts in the Church.

Meanwhile, around the web…

CONVERTS AND CONVERSION

Joseph Pearce looked at John Henry Newman as the father of the Catholic revival.

And Fr. Dwight Longenecker shared some ideas for parents whose children have left the practice of their Catholic faith.

APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK

Steve Ray had some thoughts on picking a good Bible translation.

And Rick Becker argued that anyone working in Catholic apologetics should own a Protestant Bible.

A recent convert who’s trying to help his parents understand his decision, another member on the journey who’s started to explore daily Mass, and all our members who had a fruitful retreat with us this past week in Columbus – 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!
