  • Why would anyone become Catholic?

    Why would intelligent, successful people give up their careers, alienate their friends, and cause havoc in their become Catholic? Indeed, why would anyone become Catholic? As an evangelist and author who recently threw my own life into some turmoil by deciding to enter the Catholic Church, I've faced this question a lot lately. That is one reason I decided to make this documentary; it's part of my attempt to try to explain to those closest to me why I would do such a crazy thing. Convinced isn't just about me, though. The film is built around interviews with some...
  • Jason Stellman’s Unmitigated Disaster

    Jason Stellman’s Unmitigated Disaster Rome never satisfies. It can’t. All the pomp and circumstance, all the liturgical fanfare, can never truly answer to the true needs of man. Since Rome has abandoned the gospel of grace and replaced it with a synergistic man-centered sacramentalism, she will never be able to offer to men anything but distractions, never true answers, to his real need. I feel for those who, in their wandering through the various man-made religions, find themselves trudging over the Tiber. I know so many who have found their way out of Rome, some because they have been enlightened...

    It’s natural for any employee to want to know just how committed the big boss is to the company’s future and, especially, to the expansion project that includes his job. So, even though Pope Benedict XVI didn’t make it to America in person, Father Jason Catania still appreciated the message he sent to the former Episcopal priests and others who swam the Tiber to Rome after the pontiff’s controversial “Anglicanorum Coetibus (“groups of Anglicans”) pronouncement in 2009. “We didn’t just wake up one morning last year and said, ‘Why don’t we join the Catholic Church?’ Many of us have made...

    Taylor Marshall is the guest, he is a former Anglican priest who converted to Catholicism. I love his blog, he shares things about the faith, in a few paragraphs each day, things you never knew about the faith and at the end of each writing, he directs you to related articles in his blog, just click on one of the pics. It' will be a good program for our brothers and sisters in Christ, hear Taylor share what brought about his conversion. It's 7:00 p.m. central, this evening - the Journey Home with Marcus Grodi.

    Our Lady of the Revelation at Tre Fontane Posted on June 27, 2012 by kathleen One of the most amazing stories of an atheist’s conversion to the Catholic Faith must surely be that of Bruno Cornacchiola, a violent man who hated with all his being everything to do with the Catholic Church, and had even vowed to murder the Pope!Here is his story that I have adapted slightly from Marie Smith’s account in 2006: Bruno Cornacchiola Bruno Cornacchiola, though raised a Catholic grew not only to detest everything Catholic, but also nursed a deep hatred for the Catholic Church and vowed...

    There is a certain sense in which music has the power to define various periods in one’s life.  It will come as no surprise to readers that the last decade or so of my life has been shaped by a deliberate immersion into classical and sacred music.  Just last night I gave a talk at my parish on proofs for the existence of God, and my favorite of all time come from Dr. Peter Kreeft:  the “Argument from Beauty.”  It is as concise as humanly possible: there is the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, and therefore there is a...

    Sunday, October 4, 2009 The Big Discovery         I made some good friends outside my church and found out that they were all Catholics.  Now, I did not know much about Catholicism at the time.  By the way, the Mass did seem somewhat mysterious to me externally.  In fact, what little I had heard from other church members was all negative.  There was a Mrs. J at my church, who had just retired from her missionary post in China.  She was such a kind and endearing soul to all.  One day she got back from visiting someone at a hospital and...
