Got a question about the Catholic Church, or need assistance on your journey? Consider joining our Online Community, or feel free to contact us for more information.  The Coming Home Network exists to help converts, reverts, those on the journey, and those who are just curious – we’d love to hear from you!

*****

This week’s episode of The Journey Home was a great discussion with Marcus Grodi and Msgr. Jeffrey Steenson about the unique ways in which Anglicans and Episcopalians journey toward the Catholic faith.

In the newest Deep in History episode, Marcus and Msgr. Steenson looked at more thoughts from St. Irenaeus of Lyons on the incarnation of Jesus.

On a new episode of On the Journey, Matt Swaim and Ken Hensley concluded their series on the Eucharist by answering common Protestant objections to Catholic teaching on the Real Presence.

On Deep in Christ, JonMarc Grodi and Fr. Peter Grodi talked more about Fortitude, this time as the virtue that inspires decisive action.

And we created a YouTube playlist featuring Journey Home episodes with guests who left the Catholic Church and came back.

Meanwhile, around the web…

CONVERTS AND CONVERSION

Jenny-Lou Reid shared the reality of being a Catholic convert.

Fr. Dwight Longenecker warned converts against having unreasonable expectations when they become Catholic.

The National Catholic Register looked at the challenge of receiving new members into the Church during a pandemic.

And Crux profiled a Catholic teen who is serving as a godparent to his relatives coming into the Church this Easter.

APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK

Inés San Martín shared why so many popes have expressed appreciation for the work of Dante.

And Cy Kellet gave a handy rundown of what the Church does on Holy Thursday.

A member whose career is in jeopardy because of their interest in the Catholic faith, another member struggling to find their place in the Church, and all the people we’re working with who are looking to be received into full communion with the Catholic Church this 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!
