Another Convert is Called to the Altar

Another Convert is Called to the Altar February 18, 2013

I wonder how many stories there are like this one.  Always lovely to see another soul find the fullness of the revelation and come to our Lord in obedience.  May God our Father bless him and strengthen him with the gifts of grace in the sacraments and keep him safe and strong in the faith till the Day of Christ Jesus our Lord.  We ask this through Christ our Lord, and ask, Mother Mary, that you would pray for him now and at the hour of his death.  Amen.

    ” I learned that most catholics knew very little about their faith and so I took it upon myself to try to convince them that they didn’t need the Catholic Church in order to be Christian. By the way if you’re a Catholic reading this and knew me at the time, I’m sorry. If I ever spoke of your faith in a condescending way please forgive me. I sinned against you in my ignorance and I let my own pride guide me rather than loving and supporting you in your faith.”

    I could have written that myself. I wonder how many converts have similarly gone through the Bobby Fuller – “I Fought the Law and the Law Won” sort of conversions.

    Thank you for sharing your story. As a Catholic, I am in awe of converts as they sacrifice much and their example shows the rest of us what it means to follow Christ no matter where he leads you. I wish you the Peace of Christ!

    I determined that for one full year I would live like a catholic. I would pray like a Catholic, worship like a Catholic, read Catholic things, buy catholic art, listen to catholic radio, talk to Catholic experts, and try everything catholic I could get my hands on.

    This is the principle of lex orandi, lex credendi at work.
