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 roundtable discussion with JonMarc Grodi, Dr. Rachel Lu, and Dr. Jonathan Fuqua about how studying philosophy can lead people to the Catholic faith.

In the latest Deep in Scripture, Marcus and JonMarc Grodi discussed St. Cyprian of Carthage’s thoughts on the importance of unwavering faith.

In a new episode of On the Journey, Ken Hensley and Matt Swaim looked at what the earliest Christians believed about Baptism.

On the latest episode of Deep in History, Marcus Grodi and Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson reflect on St. Irenaeus of Lyons’ reminder that we should not reduce God to mere philosophical abstractions.

And on the latest Insights video short, Catholic revert Carlos Zamora talked about why it’s important to learn about what Catholics believe from Catholic sources, rather than non-Catholic sources.

Meanwhile, around the web…

A member trying to understand Catholic teaching on Original Sin, another member who’s fallen in love with the Church but is discouraged by it’s local expressions, and another member wrestling with the relationship between Scripture and Tradition – 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!
