ETS President, Francis Beckwith Resigns, Returns to Catholic Church

My Return to the Catholic Church

During the last week of March 2007, after much prayer, counsel and consideration, my wife and I decided to seek full communion with the Roman Catholic Church. My wife, a baptized Presbyterian, is going through the process of the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA). This will culminate with her receiving the sacraments of Holy Communion and Confirmation. For me, because I had received the sacraments of Baptism, Communion, and Confirmation all before the age of 14, I need only go to confession, request forgiveness for my sins, ask to be received back into the Church, and receive absolution.

Given my status as president of the Evangelical Theological Society (ETS). . . .

You may not be aware, but it is generally considered poor blog etiquette to reproduce someone else's post in its entirety on your blog without a note of their permission. Beyond that, it is not recommended in terms of SEO. Duplicating content results in a more cluttered internet. An excerpt with a link to the original post is standard practice.

Yes, I'm aware of the issue as is evident with my entry two posts earlier, here. I posted this latter entry on the fly and did not have time to edit it until now.

Thanks for your concern.
