Becoming Catholic is much more than deciding to join another denomination and sending in your letter. For one thing, the Church does not consider herself to be one denomination among many; she considers herself to be The Church founded by Christ. She considers the many communions that have sprung up all over the globe to be related to her even though separated from her. And she prays daily for the reunion of all Christians everywhere so that there will be no disunity in the Body of Christ, as Jesus Himself prayed in the Gospels.
Here are some articles, books, and sites to help you on your journey home to the Catholic Church. And, believe me, there really is no place like home!
