August 2, 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 conversation with homeless advocate and former Baptist pastor Michael Davis about what led him to the Catholic Church.

Mike was also the focus of our newest Insights video short, in which he shared how his idea of a personal relationship with Jesus took on a much deeper meaning when he became Catholic.

We shared an article from our CHNetwork Forum about the issues that arise when pastor’s wives want to become Catholic.

We also posted a piece from CHNetwork pastoral care team member Mary Clare Miller about marital struggles on the path to the Catholic Church.

And in the latest “Memorable Verses” edition of Deep in Scripture, Marcus Grodi and TL Putnam looked at a couple of verses that show how putting God’s Kingdom first helps us better understand His providence.

 Meanwhile, around the web…

CONVERTS AND CONVERSION

Keith Little shared the quote that convinced him to become Catholic.

Catholic World Report looked at what led a Cambodian refugee to the Catholic Church.

And Aletheia profiled a former prisoner from China who has helped hundreds become Catholic.

APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK

Joe Heschmeyer shared why, when it comes to apologetics, it’s more important to win a person than it is to win an argument.

And Jimmy Akin offered more explanation on the question of why women can’t preach at Mass.

A member who feels like it may finally be time to leave her anti-Catholic church, several members working through annulments on their way into the Church, and an Anglican member struggling to understand the papacy – 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!

“Those who are seeking the true religion will never find it outside the Catholic Church alone, because, in every other religion, if they trace it up to the author, they will find some impostor whose imagination furnished a mass of sophisms and errors.”
