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 conversation with former agnostic Christopher Reibold about how the saints brought him back to the Catholic Church.

Chris was also the focus of our newest Insights video short, in which he explained in more depth how the saints became real to him.

We published online the incredible written story of recent Journey Home guest Derya Little, who shared her path from Islam through agnosticism and Evangelical Christianity to the Catholic Church.

And in the latest “Memorable Verses” edition of Deep in Scripture, Marcus Grodi and Seth Pain share two verses from the writings of St. John the Apostle. Bonus: Seth even sings his verse!

 Meanwhile, around the web…

CONVERTS AND CONVERSION

Zac Mabry shared the moment he realized he had to become Catholic.

A former Southern Baptist explained why she plans to enter the Catholic Church this Fall.

An English Catholic school profiled St. John Boste, an English Catholic convert and martyr whose feast we celebrated earlier this week.

In a nice meta-article, GetReligion looked at how secular media covered the conversion of the Crystal Cathedral into a Catholic Church.

APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK

Catherine Hadro explained why women can’t preach at Catholic Mass.

And Jimmy Akin shared some thoughts on how to teach children about the Eucharist.

A member trying to help their family understand why they’re becoming Catholic, a couple who just told the pastor who married them that they’re entering the Church, and an inquirer who’s getting ready to go on their first monastic retreat – 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!
