July's Blog of Note: Convert Journal


July’s blog of note is Convert Journal. Described as “One guy's journey in the Catholic Church”, since January 2010, George Sipe has chronicled his conversion to and exploration of Catholicism — providing insightful, informative observations along the way. A life-long, single denomination Protestant, Sipe was surprised to find himself becoming a Catholic. From the blog:
There are many wonderful Catholic convert stories in print and on the web. This is mine and maybe some part of it will resonate with you. You may have a nagging feeling something is missing in your life. Your church might be changing along a path that does not feel right. Perhaps you wonder what Catholics really believe. I am glad you are here and happy, even if it is just the two of us reading it. …
Convert Journal is a treasure trove of information for the curious and the convert. Even lifelong Catholics, well versed in their faith will gain valuable new understanding from the essays and achieved information contained therein. The site features audio, videos, book reviews, and numerous posts on assorted topics of interest relating to the Church and contemporary society among others. Additionally, Convert Journal hosts New Evangelists Monthly, an informal, dynamic, crowd-sourced “meta-magazine” showcasing the best posts faithful Catholic bloggers publish each month. There you will find many different, but faithfully Catholic viewpoints and perspectives. If you are a blogger who is faithful to the Magisterium, please consider contributing.

Whether you are a cradle Catholic, a convert, or someone in search of the truth, Convert Journal is well worth your time. Visit today and make it a part of your blog reading regimen.
