This week’s episode of The Journey Home was an encore of our conversation with Matt D’Antuono, whose conversion to Catholicism jeopardized his job as a private Christian schoolteacher.

Our latest written conversion story comes from Fr. Jeffrey Kirby, who shares how he went from a lukewarm, uneducated pewsitter to a Catholic priest.

In the latest Deep in Scripture, Marcus and JonMarc Grodi discussed St. Cyprian of Carthage’s thoughts on humility in the Lord’s Prayer.

In a new episode of On the Journey, Ken Hensley and Matt Swaim tackled the issue of whether sola Scriptura is logical.

On the latest episode of Deep in History, Marcus Grodi and Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson look at how St. Irenaeus tackled the numerological arguments of the Gnostics.

And on the latest Insights video short, Kevin Stephenson shared why he was willing to join the Catholic Church despite Her headline-making scandals.

Meanwhile, around the web…

CONVERTS AND CONVERSION

Catholic News Agency looked at the conversion story of the woman voted “greatest Black Briton.”

Recent Journey Home guest Heather King reflected on the life of Elisabeth Leseur, a model for Catholics whose spouses are hostile toward their faith.

And the Catholic Herald (UK) noted the passing of a Catholic convert who had an incredible ministry to the people of China.

APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK

Fr. Dwight Longenecker explained why dogma liberates and relativism enslaves.

And Dr. Steve Wiedenkopf shared the real story of King St. Louis IX, who has become a subject of controversy in recent weeks.

Several members whose interest in the Church is causing issues in their marriages, a number of lapsed Catholics returning to the Church, and all our members who have been newly received into the Church – 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!
