CONVERTS AND CONVERSION
Fr. Dwight Longenecker reflected on why it can be so hard for converts to find fellowship in a Catholic parish.
Stephanie Mann looked at some contemporary reactions to St. John Henry Newman’s conversion.
Fr. Ed Broom shared 10 ways to invite lapsed Catholics back home.
APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK
Jimmy Akin discussed whether or not Catholics are allowed to get tattoos.
And Theresa Doyle-Nelson reflected on the mysterious Old Testament figure Melchizedek.
A member whose interest in Catholicism could cost her husband his job, another member whose health problems have caused them to suspend their research of Catholic questions, and a new convert feeling lonely in their own parish – 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!
