This week’s episode of The Journey Home was a powerful conversation with Catholic hip hop artist John Levi Davidson, who hit rock bottom in college before returning to the sacraments.

In a new episode of On the Journey, Matt Swaim and Ken Hensley explored whether Abraham, Noah and Moses were legalists.

In the latest Deep in History, Marcus Grodi and Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson looked at St. Irenaeus of Lyons and his comments about the importance of Rome in the life of the Church.

On this week’s Deep in Scripture episode, Marcus and JonMarc Grodi discussed what St. Cyprian of Carthage had to say about love of God and love of neighbor.

And on our newest Signposts video short, former Episcopal priest Andrew Petiprin (whose Journey Home episode will air soon!) talked about his winding path through Narnia and Middle Earth to the Catholic Church.

A member trying to decipher Catholic devotions, another member who’s decided they’re no longer interested in Catholicism, and all our members whose careers could be impacted by their interest in the Catholic faith – 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!
