This week’s episode of The Journey Home was an encore of our wonderful conversation with Melissa Zelniker-Presser, who shared how her Jewish roots prepared her to understand the Catholic faith.

In the latest Deep in History, Marcus Grodi and Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson discussed what St. Irenaeus of Lyons had to say about the reliability of the Gospels.

We shared an article by Mary Clare Miller with tips for new Catholics trying to find their place in the Church.

On this week’s Deep in Scripture episode, Marcus and JonMarc Grodi looked at St. Cyprian of Carthage’s thoughts on the importance of moral discipline.

And on our newest Signposts video short, Sarah Christmyer shared what happened when she joined RCIA as a way to disprove Catholic teaching.

Meanwhile, around the web…

CONVERTS AND CONVERSION

Stephanie Mann told the story behind a famous painting of a Chinese Catholic convert.

On Twitter, a priest shared his reversion story as a way to encourage Catholics whose loved ones no longer practice their faith.

And the actor who played Barabbas in The Passion of the Christ shared how that role was instrumental in his own conversion.

APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK

Karlo Broussard answered common objections to the Catholic practice of praying for the intercession of the saints.

And Stephen Beale looked at 7 ways Mary is prefigured in the Old Testament.

A member who feels her marriage situation is an obstacle to entering the Church, another member interested in Catholicism but troubled by the factions and cliques they’re encountering, and all the new Catholics we’re working with who are trying to figure out how to put down roots in their new parish families 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. Please help us continue to support those on the journey by visiting chnetwork.org/donate today!
