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 an encore of our conversation with Dr. Bryan Cross, who some may be familiar with through his work with Called to Communion.

We published an article by Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson about how Pope St. Gregory the Great navigated the Church through a time of plague in the late 6th century.

In a new episode of On the Journey, Ken Hensley and Matt Swaim discussed how they came to realize that their reasons for believing in sola Scriptura were logically circular.

On the latest episode of Deep in History, Marcus Grodi and Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson looked at how St. Irenaeus of Lyons discussed the roots of the errors of Gnosticism in the case of Simon the Sorcerer.

This week’s episode of Deep in Scripture features a discussion between Marcus and JonMarc Grodi about Philippians 3, Psalm 4 and trusting God’s will.

And on the latest Insights video short, Shaun Rieley talked about how the U.S. Constitution helped him understand the role of the Magisterium in interpreting Scripture.

Meanwhile, around the web…

CONVERTS AND CONVERSION

Heather Tomlinson described her unconventional path from atheism to the Catholic faith.

Former atheist and Baptist Dr. Ian Murphy shares how he came to terms with the idea of the Communion of Saints.

And the National Catholic Register is looking for stories of people returning to Mass after quarantine; we’d love to see some accounts of our members who are being received into the Church as parishes begin to reopen!

APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK

Shane Kapler looks at why Pentecost is considered the birthday of the Church.

And Steve Wiedenkopf looked at the anniversary of the Fall of Constantinople.

*****

A member wrestling with whether to be Orthodox or Catholic, another member exploring Anglicanism after a negative experience with a Catholic priest, and all our members who are preparing to be received into the Church this weekend at Pentecost – 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!
