Scripture Incarnate: Matthew 1:1

I am reading through Fire of Mercy, Heart of the Word, Vol. I, Erasmo Leiva-Merikakis’ commentary on the Gospel of Matthew. You can see all of my posts on this subject here.

Save Send Delete by Danusha Goska

Save Send Delete by Danusha Goska My rating: 5 of 5 stars I became excited when Moyers identified you as a skeptic who questions everything. I actually put down my fork and stopped chewing my pasta fazool. I question everything, and I find that makes me very lonely. If you want to talk about Islam [Read More...]

cover-catholicscomehome

I’ve been a fan of Catholics Come Home for quite a while, so when I saw that the founder had written a book (called, appropriately enough, Catholics Come Home: God’s Extraordinary Plan for Your Life), I was interested.

Why I’m Catholic

Because the Catholic Church is One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic. Ten years ago I belonged to an Episcopal congregation that called itself “Biblically Orthodox”, in contradistinction to more theologically liberal groups within that denomination, and made the mistake of asking what “Biblically Orthodox” really meant.

Why I’m Catholic

Jen Fitz here, answering the call from Patheos to explain ourselves!  Here’s my story: 1. I’m Catholic because my parents had me baptized as a baby.  We went to church sporadically.  I  knew very little about my faith, but always knew I was Catholic. 2.
