FIVE ESSENTIAL CONVERSIONS EVERY NEW
For Every New
(and not so new)
By Dr. Kenneth Howell is a well written and easy to read as well. The section below is a very small sample. If you are interested in reading more I suggest you go to the Coming Home Network International www.chnetwork.org and register. You won’t regret it.
“Becoming Catholic is not about changing churches or adopting a new religion; it is a movement from Here to Eternity.”
“conversion involves a process of change in one’s worldview that reaches to the core of one’s being.”
“Becoming Catholic inevitably involves coming to appreciate and embrace the value of the history of the Church and the desire to be rooted in history.”
“The New Testament, too, repeatedly draws its readers back to the central events of salvation in the Paschal Mystery of Christ, His suffering, death, and resurrection. Recall how Paul reminds the Romans that their baptisms united them with the Christ in His death and resurrection (Rom 6:1ff) and how he reminds the Corinthians that the celebration of the Lord’s Supper (Eucharist) is a proclamation of the historical death of Christ (1 Cor 11:26).
“Becoming Catholic has never been easy but it may be more difficult now than ever. Seeing the world as flat, lifeless, and meaningless poses seemingly insurmountable obstacles to conversion but, once a person is willing to see physical reality as suffused with God’s presence and a conduit of grace, he has taken the first step toward deep conversion. The eternity promised in the future becomes the eternity grasped in the present for eternal life is simply to know God and Jesus Christ whom He sent” (Chapter 3, A Sacramental Worldview).
I hope this small sample motivates you to read the entire e-book at the Coming Home Network International web site.
