CONVERTS AND CONVERSION

Joe Bukuras looked at some of the ways that Catholic convert St. John Henry Newman articulated Church teachings on Mary.
Fr. Ken Geraci shared a bit about his journey from being an agnostic chasing professional success to conversion and a call to the priesthood.
APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK
The Latin Catholic Patriarch of Jerusalem has called for a day of prayer and fasting on Tuesday, Oct. 17, for peace and reconciliation in the Holy Land.
And Aleteia explored why the priest adds a little water to the wine at Mass prior to the consecration of the Eucharist.
A member struggling with second thoughts as they’re exploring the Catholic faith, several members trying to understand current events in light of Church teaching, and all our members who recently started OCIA classes — these are just a few of the people we are praying for and working with at The Coming Home Network.
