This new, revised edition of Journeys Home contains the stories of men and women who, having surrendered their lives to Jesus Christ, heard a call to follow Him more completely. Many of them were pastors or missionaries. Others were lay men and women who, though working in secular jobs, took their calling to serve Christ in the world very seriously. In each case, their desire to follow Christ faithfully to remain faithful to the truth He taught and to the Church He established through His apostles led them to embrace the Catholic Church. These conversion stories provide insight, encouragement, and inspiration for those who are thinking about making the same journey and for Catholics born in the faith as well.
Praise for Journeys Home
“Excellent book, one of the finest book I have ever read on conversions to the Catholic faith.”–Raul, from California
“It is fascinating to read of the often painful, yet finally fulfilling, journeys of people who sacrificed so much for the 'pearl of great price'. The contributors to this book open up their hearts and emotions to the reader. They are people who have always searched for 'the road less travelled' and have finally found their desired goal.”–Fr. Adrian H.
