I was gladdened (and surprised!) to see Lou Holtz in a 30 second ad from Catholics Come Home, during two different televised college football games this weekend. For a quick shot about the Church, I thought it was really well done– perhaps the utter surprise factor was part of its appeal to me, and hopefully others.
But apparently I’ve completely missed the boat on this organization, Catholics Come Home, which has been around since the late 90’s. I now recall seeing a few of their ads in the past but they dropped off my radar enough that I didn’t link the Holtz ad to the others. And I’ll admit I didn’t know Holtz was devoted Catholic. To top it off, it appears that this ad has already been around for at least a year and a half.
