Meanwhile, around the web…
CONVERTS AND CONVERSION
Matt Simpson, a Paralympian representing Team USA in goal ball next week, shared his journey to the Catholic faith.
The National Catholic Register wondered if Nicholas Black Elk, who became Catholic in his 40’s, could be a future patron saint of catechists.
And Doug Beaumont pondered why so many people from his former seminary have become Catholic.
APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK
Fr. John Cush explored resources to help better understand a Catholic perspective on Christology.
And Karlo Broussard explored what Catholics mean when they talk about human beings having a soul.
A member who seems to keep hitting roadblocks on their journey, a new Catholic still trying to get their sea legs, and a couple seeking to get their marriage convalidated in the Church – 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!
