This week’s episode of The Journey Home was an encore of our powerful conversation with Charles Hoffman, whose journey from Judaism into the Catholic Church began with his family’s escape from Nazi Germany.
In our latest written story, former Methodist minister Keith Nester shared his long and winding path to the Catholic Church.
And in a new Insights video, Marcus Peter expressed gratitude for the way his Protestant background prepared him for his return to the Catholic Church.
Meanwhile, around the web…
CONVERTS AND CONVERSION
KV Turley looked at the Catholic conversion of jazz legend Mary Lou Williams.
Recent Journey Home guest Fr. Boniface Hicks, OSB, discussed St. Joseph from a convert’s perspective.
Theresa Doyle-Nelson profiled Sts. Priscilla and Aquila, the convert couple who served as a support for St. Paul.
And more items related to Catholic convert St. Elizabeth Ann Seton have gone on display at her shrine in Maryland.
APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK
Dave Armstrong looked at archaeological evidence for the Biblical figure Joshua.
And Steve Ray explained that while the word “transubstantiation” came into use in the 1200’s, the doctrine goes back to the beginning.
A member praying for fortitude against their fears of becoming Catholic, another member worried that becoming Catholic will destroy their marriage, and another member seeking to meet Catholic friends – 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!
