This week’s episode of The Journey Home was an encore with “Bible Study Evangelista” and former Southern Baptist Sonja Corbitt.

On a new Insights video short, former Evangelical Christian minister David Sanborn shares how he came to understand that the Holy Spirit has always been active in the Catholic Church.

In our latest written conversion story, former Quaker pastor Clarence White shared what led him to the Catholic Church.

In a Q&A article from the archives, our community forum reflected on the difficulties of going through RCIA with a disability or chronic illness.

For her feast this week, we revisited a community question looking at what some of our members thought of Mother Teresa before they became Catholic.

And on the latest episode of Deep in Scripture, Marcus Grodi and Matt D’Antuono had a lively discussion on I Timothy 3:15 and Ephesians 2:8-9, and how we need both Scripture and the Church, and both faith and works.

 Meanwhile, around the web…

CONVERTS AND CONVERSION

Dave Armstrong looked at how the Catholic conversion of Malcolm Muggeridge helped introduce Mother Teresa to the world.

Multiple outlets reflected on the Integrated Humanities Programs at the University of Kansas, which ended up getting shut down in the 1970’s because so many of its students ended up becoming Catholic.

And the Shrine of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton shared an article about what St. Elizabeth and St. Augustine teach us about preparing our hearts for conversion.

APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK

Trent Horn from Catholic Answers took a sobering look at the reality of hell.

And Douglas Beaumont looked at how the Church has taught about the Real Presence of Jesus in the Eucharist throughout Her history.

A former pastor wondering how he’ll support his family now that he’s pursued his interest in Catholicism, a member who’s experiencing spiritual warfare as she begins RCIA, and all our members working through annulments on their way into the 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!
