We’ve launched a brand new web series! On the inaugural episode of Deep in Christ, JonMarc Grodi and Ken Hensley discussed the Universal Call to Holiness laid out in Lumen Gentium.

This week’s episode of The Journey Home was a great conversation with Nathan Wigfield, who was a seminarian and a church planter before finding his way to the Catholic faith.

Nathan was also featured on this week’s Insights video short, sharing how he got started praying the Liturgy of the Hours with his family.

On the latest Deep in History, Marcus Grodi and Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson looked at what St. Irenaeus of Lyons had to say about the role of Mary in salvation history.

And in a new episode of On the Journey, Matt Swaim and Ken Hensley discussed the Reformation doctrine of imputed righteousness.

Meanwhile, around the web…

CONVERTS AND CONVERSION

David Mills posted a moving tribute to the late Thomas Howard, who passed away this week. Thomas impacted countless people through books like Evangelical is Not Enough, and was the first ever guest on The Journey Home when it launched in 1997.

With the feast of St. John Henry Newman this month, Carl Sundell put together a wonderful overview of his life and thought.

And Darren Geist shared how encountering Mary helped lead him to the Catholic faith.

APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK

Msgr. Charles Pope looked at proofs for the resurrection of Jesus.

And Fr. Hugh Barbour, O.P., discussed why Catholics bless stuff.

A member who’s praying her father will find Christ in his final days, another member looking for support from her parish after a miscarriage, and all our members who are in the early stages of the RCIA process – 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!
