In the latest episode of On the Journey, Matt Swaim and Ken Hensley explored the idea of the development of doctrine in regard to the papacy.
On this week’s Deep in Christ, JonMarc and Fr. Peter Grodi addressed accusations by some outside the Church that Catholics engage in cannibalism when they receive the Eucharist.
In a new Insights video short, Jeff Miller shared more about the role G.K. Chesterton played in leading him to the Catholic faith.

Meanwhile, around the web…
CONVERTS AND CONVERSION
The Discalced Carmelite Friars reflected on the conversion of St. Edith Stein, whose feast was this week.
Recent Journey Home guest Matt D’Antuono reflected on how to keep your faith in college.
And Casey Chalk, who has also been a guest on The Journey Home, pondered how we should respond to celebrity conversion in light of the recent announcement from Britney Spears.
APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK
The National Catholic Register looked at the 17th century friar who helped invent cappuccino.
And Fr. Hugh Barbour, O.P., talked about how charity is not an option for the Christian life.
A member wondering how to pray as they prepare for baptism, another member who’s been exploring Catholicism online but wants to start meeting Catholic friends in person, and another member who wants to become Catholic but is worried her local parish doesn’t take the faith seriously – 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 most deadly poison of our time is indifference.”
