This week’s episode of The Journey Home was an encore of our conversation with Mike Peters, a nondenominational campus minister who became Catholic.

We shared the written conversion story of Andrew Comiskey, who found freedom in the midst of his struggles with chastity and identity through the Theology of the Body.

In the newest Deep in History episode, Marcus Grodi and Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson looked at what St. Irenaeus of Lyons had to say about the resurrection of the body.

On Deep in Christ, JonMarc Grodi and Fr. Peter Grodi talked more about the Cardinal Virtue of Fortitude, especially its role in helping us develop patience.

And in a new Insights video short, Deacon Joe Calvert shared how the witness of Mother Teresa and St. Francis of Assisi helped open his heart to the Catholic faith.

Meanwhile, around the web…

Douglas Beaumont reflected on his journey from Evangelical professor to Catholic apologist.

Jenny-Lou Reid explained why she changed her mind about Catholicism.

APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK

Pope Francis opined that while “co-redemptrix” may be an affectionate way to express our love for the Blessed Mother, it should not be established as a dogmatic title for Mary.

And Chris Stefanick shared 4 simple tips for growing deeper in prayer.

A member who continues to feel drawn to the Catholic Church but doesn’t feel ready to commit yet, a returning Catholic looking for support on their journey, and all the people we’re working with who are looking to be received into full communion with the Catholic Church next weekend – 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!

“The Church is that one wherein the true word of God is preached, which Christ left to His Apostles, which the same Church hath always observed, the doctors preached, and Martyrs and confessors witnessed. This is the Church I believe to be true.”

St. Margaret Clitherow
