This week’s episode of The Journey Home featured Fr. Jonathan Duncan, a former Baptist and Pentecostal who became an Episcopal priest before coming into the Catholic Church.

In a new written story, Vera Petrovic shared her incredible story of healing and hope on the way into the Catholic Church.

We brought a Deep in Scripture episode out from the archives, with Marcus Grodi and Jim Anderson discussing Philippians 3 and focusing on Christ during Christmas, in spite of distractions.

And on a new Insights video short, Dr. Francis Beckwith shared a story of the pope and his grandmother’s rosary that illustrated how his journey of faith has come full circle.

Meanwhile, around the web…

CONVERTS AND CONVERSION

A former Anglican bishop and chaplain to Queen Elizabeth II, Gavin Ashenden, announced that he’ll be received into the Catholic Church this weekend.

Desiree Hausam had some thoughts for converts on how to keep from getting sucked into Catholic cliques and camps.

APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK

Todd Aglialoro explained Church teaching on end-of-life issues after some controversial comments from an Italian archbishop.

And Msgr Charles Pope had some thoughts on how long a homily should be.

A member trying to resolve conflicts between RCIA and his work schedule, another member struggling with impatience while she waits to be received into the Church, and all our recent conversations members who are preparing to celebrate their first Christmas as Catholics – these are just a few examples of the people we are praying for and working with at The Coming Home Network International. Please help us continue to support those on the journey by visiting chnetwork.org/donate today!
