The CHNetwork Weekly Roundup #203

May 15, 2020 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 discussion with David Mills about the nature of conversion, and how he’s grown to better understand his own story over the years.

We published a new written conversion story from Michele Gower, who shared how involvement with the occult led to a nervous breakdown, and how that experience redirected her toward the Catholic faith.

In a new episode of On the Journey, Ken Hensley and Matt Swaim look at what Scripture tells us about how the Church was supposed to function after the apostles died.

And on the latest Insights video short, Sarah Christmyer shared how she came to develop an appreciation for Mary on her way into the Catholic Church.

Meanwhile, around the web…

CONVERTS AND CONVERSION

NHL all-star game MVP John Scott shared what led him to enter the Catholic Church in 2017.

The Anglicanorum Coetibus Society published a talk from Fr. Jack Barker on the history of the Personal Ordinariate.

And Seth Haines shared what it’s been like to wait to be received into the Church during the current pandemic.

APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK

Msgr Charles Pope looked at how the Council of Jerusalem in Acts 15 shows that the early Church was Catholic.

And Karlo Broussard explained that if we don’t believe in free will, we’re left to assume that God causes us to sin.

A member who’s currently going through the annulment process, our members who have recently welcomed babies into their families, and all our members whose plans to enter the Church continue to be on hold because of the COVID-19 pandemic – 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!
