RESOURCE FOR THE WEEK: The Journey Home

 

 

jh 1

This week's resources is a television show/podcast/website called The Journey Home which is a show created by  The Coming Home Network.  It is a show that airs on EWTN where those who have converted to Catholicism tell their stories.  Sometimes it is a protestant minister who converted, sometimes it is a cradle Catholics returning to the faith.

Sometimes, as practicing Catholics, we can take the beauty of our faith for granted.  We forget what makes our faith unique, what gifts we have in the Church, how incredibly consistent our faith is.  For this reason is it wonderful to listen to stories of converts who can point out to us the wonder and awesome beauty and truth and reason in our faith. Whether they are attracted by the doctrines, or the authority, or the history, or the mystery of Catholicism, when they begin to explore the faith (sometimes for the purpose of trying to prove it wrong) they find themselves irresistibly attracted.  Their enthusiasm, their wonder, and their joy at discovering the depths of Catholicism can stir into flame our own faith when we find that our faith is running a little flat.
