This week’s episode of The Journey Home was a fascinating conversation with Zubair Simonson, a Muslim whose journey to the Catholic faith was shaped in part by the September 11 attacks.

We published the written story of Bradlee Sargent, who shared how encountering Mary led him to the Catholic Church.

In a new episode of On the Journey, Ken Hensley and Matt Swaim discussed the two main verses that are often invoked in order to defend the doctrine of sola Scriptura.

On the latest episode of Deep in History, Marcus Grodi and Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson looked at the sweeping influence of gnosticism in the time of St. Irenaeus of Lyons.

This week’s episode of Deep in Scripture featured a discussion with Marcus and JonMarc Grodi of how to remain in Christ while waiting for a full return to the sacraments.

And on the latest Insights video short, Sarah Christmyer shares how she came to trust the teachings and tradition of the Catholic Church.

A member seeking to join the Catholic Church through the Ordinariate, another member seeking help to develop a relationship with Mary, and all our members who were received into the Church this past 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!
