Words into Video: Why I am Catholic

We've been running (and continually adding to) ruminations, here on the portal, as to why we are Catholic. It's actually part of a larger project throughout the Patheos site, involving bloggers from every channel, and it's pretty interesting. Later this week, we will hopefully find all of the Catholic responses gathered together and showcased on our landing page.One of our readers liked Fr. Dwight Longenecker's response so well, he created a rather moving and effective video out of it. I … [Read more...]
