The CHNetwork Weekly Roundup #161

July 5, 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!

*****

This week’s episode of The Journey Home was a great catch-up with former nondenominational pastor and Catholic revert Jeff Cavins, who returned to the show for the first time since 2001!

In a new Insights video short, former Baptist RJ Snell shared how becoming Catholic only deepened his love of the Bible.

In the latest “Memorable Verses” edition of Deep in Scripture, Marcus Grodi and “Bible Study Evangelista” Sonja Corbitt discussed Psalm 4:4 and 37:4, about finding true peace in the Lord.

And in a new written conversion story, Curtis Walker shared his spiritual journey from Southern Baptist to Catholic.

 Meanwhile, around the web…

CONVERTS AND CONVERSION

Catholic News Agency profiled a family of five whose search for truth led them to the Catholic faith.

The National Catholic Register looked at the Catholics Come Home apostolate two decades in.

Catholic Faith Journeys posted info on a pilgrimage to Rome for the October 13 canonization of John Henry Newman.

And Jim Graves interviewed a deacon, a priest and a bishop who are all converts.

APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK

Karlo Broussard explained that Jesus did indeed mean to found a Church when he gave Peter the Keys to the Kingdom.

And Matt D’Antuono reminded us that there is no necessary conflict between science and religion.

A member who’s become discouraged and wants to stop pursuing her interest in the Church, another member trying to understand the intercession of the saints, and a family who was received into the Church two years ago, but is still struggling to fit in – 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!
