This week’s episode of The Journey Home was an encore of our 2018 conversation with Matthew and Elisabeth Akers about what led them from Anglicanism to the Catholic Church.

Our latest written conversion story came from Christine Hall, who shared her journey through The Late Great Planet Earth and the 700 Club back to the her Catholic faith.

In the latest Deep in History, Marcus Grodi and Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson discussed St. Irenaeus of Lyons and the importance of being able to trace our faith back to the apostles.

In a new episode of On the Journey, Matt Swaim and Ken Hensley look at how St. Paul distinguishes between two types of obedience in his letters.

On this week’s Deep in Scripture episode, Marcus and JonMarc Grodi reflected on St. Cyprian of Carthage’s admonition to prefer nothing to Christ.

We created a YouTube playlist of Journey Home guests who come from a Restorationist/Church of Christ background.

And on our newest Insights video short, Nathan Wigfield (an upcoming Journey Home guest!) shared what happened when he started adding written prayers into his spiritual routine.

Meanwhile, around the web…

CONVERTS AND CONVERSION

Former Christianity Today editor-in-chief Mark Galli will be entering the Catholic Church this weekend, which has caused a variety of reactions from his former colleagues.

And a new “pre-ordinariate” group is flourishing in North Carolina.

APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK

Paul Senz looked at why the census that brought Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem is important.

And Karlo Broussard discussed the question of “Petrine hiddenness” in the New Testament.

A member who’s discouraged by the lack of fellowship at the parish she’s begun exploring, a new Catholic seeking to grow in their prayer life, and all our members who will be beginning RCIA over the next few weeks – 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!
