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 powerful conversation with Michael Vanderburgh, who regained his faith after suffering abuse from a priest during his childhood.

We published the written story of Kelli Beaumont, who pulled her husband out of the Catholic Church only to later feel herself called to become Catholic.

In a new episode of On the Journey, Ken Hensley and Matt Swaim explored more points on the question of the history of sola Scriptura.

On the latest episode of Deep in History, Marcus Grodi and Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson discussed the “pleroma” of God.

And on the latest Insights video short, Carlos Zamora shared the discovery that led him to return to the Eucharist.

Meanwhile, around the web…

CONVERTS AND CONVERSION

Desiree Hausam reflected on how Catholic converts, who have been willing to have their minds and hearts changed on major issues, can offer needed perspective in a divided culture.

The mother of one of the Church’s newest saints shared how her son helped bring her back to faith.

The National Catholic Register featured a story on farmer and Catholic convert Jesse Straight.

Patti Armstrong reviewed a new book for parents who want their children to return to the Church.

Robin Rohr Carter shared how the Eucharist drew her back to the Catholic Church.

And the Anglicanorum Coetibus blog reflected on the 40th anniversary of the Pastoral Provision.

APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK

Keith Little offered an explanation of purgatory to help Evangelical Christians understand the doctrine.

And Joe Heschmeyer explained the Biblical basis for the papacy.

A member whose loved ones are afraid that her interest in Catholicism means she’s joining a cult, another member struggling to find employment, and a family worried that becoming Catholic will ruin many of their relationships – 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!

“But one of the soldiers pierced his side with a spear, and at once there came out blood and water. He who saw it has borne witness—his testimony is true, and he knows that he tells the truth—that you also may believe.”

John 19:34-35
