APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK
Kathy Schiffer looked at how St. Mary Major, a basilica in Rome, got its own feast day.
Jimmy Akin explored 10 fascinating facts about the Transfiguration of Jesus.
And Trent Horn explained why you have to believe in the Trinity but you don’t have to understand it.
A member who’s finally ready to reach out to a local priest, another member whose casual interest in Catholicism has recently become more serious, and another member who just opened up to their circle of friends about their desire to become Catholic – 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!
“We must sow the seed, not hoard it.”
