“To be deep in history is to cease to be Protestant.”

As convert I read with interest the stories of other converts at the Coming Home Network run by Marcus Grodi.  His is, I think, also the best of the shows at EWTN.

Today a story at CHN caught my eye partly because the writer references the great phrase of Bl. John Henry Newman:

“To be deep in history is to cease to be Protestant.”

The post is worth a few minutes of your time.  It is instructive and edifying.  The writer, formerly a Baptist, started looking into early Church writings on baptism and BAMMO.

Also, that great phrase is on some of my swag HERE

Here is a shot of the regular sized coffee mug… I’ll bet you could put your yogurt and granola in it too.

To be deep in history
And the larger one.

There is also now a MEGA-size.  Very handy.  I use that size all the time now.

Anyway…

One of the benefits I derive from sales of these mugs, etc., is that I can use the credit to send mugs to priests and bishops who do great things!
