1. I am a Catholic because Christ in the Eucharist called me for years and a good priest opened the doors and let me in.
2. I am a Christian — which happened before I became a Catholic — because Christ in the Holy Spirit called me. He called me throughout my anti-religion years.
3. St Peter told Jesus: Where else would we go? You alone have the words that lead to eternal life. That was true then. It’s true now.
That, in 85 words, is why I am a Catholic.
