Atheist Poet Becomes Catholic

Atheist Poet Becomes Catholic July 14, 2017

I love the different ways Jesus reaches people:

“It was around this time that Read found something fresh in one of her favorite books, ‘I Capture the Castle.’ ‘The book was written for children, and I read it almost every year,’ Read says. ‘I read the book for comfort. There’s one scene where the protagonist Cassandra, whom I’ve always identified with, has this conversation with this vicar. I never noticed what he said to her – it was about art as being the ultimate attempt at communion with God. It really hit me. It just broke through.’

“She adds, ‘In retrospect, I think that God works through things very specifically. It’s no coincidence that that book grew with me.'”
