The “Deep in History” conference was originally conceived of by my father, Marcus Grodi, president of the CHNetwork and host of “The Journey Home” on EWTN. The conference was intended to take people deep into the history of the Christian faith. Newman said “to be deep in history is to cease to be protestant” and with the 500th anniversary of the protestant reformation looming in 2017, Marcus wanted to offer this annual conference to tackle different themes and historical periods of our faith.
An historical perspective on the Christian faith is largely lacking in the minds of modern believers. This is a pity, for not only does the historical perspective help non-catholics understand the authenticity of Catholicism but it also lends itself greatly to helping people understand the miraculous continuity, longevity, and persistence of Christ’s Church. The Church has survived persecution and societal pressure from without as well as scandal and dissent from within. Nevertheless, the gates of hell have not and will not prevail.
Here is a little video I threw together at last year’s Deep in History conference, of various people talking about the importance of the historical perspective on the faith and how the conference helps with that.
