This week’s episode of The Journey Home was a great conversation with Dr. Brian McGee, president of Quincy University, who shared how his Wesleyan formation prepared him to joyfully embrace the teachings of the Catholic Church.

In an incredibly powerful written story, Elvis Gutierrez shared the story of how his role as a 9/11 “second responder and his experience of being a post-abortive father were used by God to draw him back to the sacraments.

The newest Deep in History episode was a conversation between Marcus Grodi and Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson about why it’s important to see the Old and New Testament as all part of one big story.

For this week’s episode of On the Journey, Ken Hensley and Matt Swaim looked at Catholic teaching on the concept of divine sonship of believers.

On the latest Deep in Christ, JonMarc and Fr. Peter Grodi looked at Prudence, the “Mother of all Virtues.”

And in a new Insights video short, Nathan Wigfield looked at the benefits of praying the Liturgy of the Hours in community.

Meanwhile, around the web…

CONVERTS AND CONVERSION

Zubair Simonson reflected on the role of Our Lady in drawing Muslims to the Catholic faith.

And Joseph Pearce looked at the life of Maurice Baring, a Catholic convert who was close friends with GK Chesterton.

APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK

Fr. Dwight Longenecker looked at monasticism in the Star Wars universe.

And Mark Brumley pondered the Church’s discernment in observing Sunday as the primary day of Christian worship.

A member frustrated because they called their local Catholic parish and nobody called them back, a new convert struggling with how to properly incorporate Confession into their routine, and all our members headed toward their first Christmas as Catholics – 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!
