In a new On the Journey, Matt, Ken, and Kenny discussed what the word “catholic” means.
Dean Waldt shared how as a Presbyterian minister, he only used to preach about Mary at Christmas.
Marcus Grodi reflected on how our bookshelves tell the story of our lives.
And JonMarc Grodi issued an invitation to those considering exploring the Catholic Church during Advent.
CONVERTS AND CONVERSION
The National Catholic Register reported on a member of The Pogues receiving last rites before he passed away.
David Deavel reflected on St. Francis Xavier’s desire to invite people to convert to Christianity.
The American Catholic History podcast explored the life of a little-known priest who had a massive impact on American Catholic history.
And Anne Bennet discussed the recent feast of St. Charles de Foucald, a soldier who became a hermit.
APOLOGETICS PICKS OF THE WEEK
Catholic News Agency highlighted a few monasteries and convents that might make for good Christmas giving ideas.
And Fr. Hugh Barbour looked at how to make Advent useful.
A member whose spouse is opposed to their interest in Catholicism, another member who is struggling to understand the divinity of Jesus, and all our members approaching Advent for the first time — these are just a few of the people we are praying for and working with at The Coming Home Network.
