This week’s episode of The Journey Home was an great conversation with the always engaging and fun Dr. John Bergsma, a former Christian Reformed minister who is now an acclaimed Catholic Bible scholar.

Our latest written conversion story came from Doug Doughan, a cradle Catholic who became a Protestant minister before returning to the sacraments.

In the latest Deep in History, Marcus Grodi and Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson continued their discussion of St. Irenaeus of Lyons by digging into Book 3 of Against Heresies.

On this week’s Deep in Scripture episode, Marcus and JonMarc Grodi looked at what St. Cyprian of Carthage had to say about the relationship between justice and mercy.

On our newest Insights video short, preacher’s kid Matthew Leonard shared how the Bible came alive for him in a new way when he started looking at it through Catholic eyes.

And we put together a playlist of some of the best recent Journey Home episodes that feature Calvinists who became Catholic.

A member trying to find a good parish where she can start RCIA, several members currently struggling with health issues, and all the new Catholics we’re working with who are trying to figure out how to live sacramental lives under COVID-19 restrictions – these are just a few examples of the people we are praying for and working with at The Coming Home Network International.
