God Has Been a Relentless Pursuer of My Heart

I also know a guy I went through RCIA with who converted to Christianity from Judaism because of Mozart. Something like twenty years ago, he was at a record store and heard it playing over the loudspeakers. This lightning bolt hit for a second and he thought, "What kind of God inspires this kind of music?" That was the first beam of light that led to his conversion, and now he's a Catholic. It was such a crazy story because here you are with this guy who has this rich heritage but he wasn't practicing it. Then one day, he hears this piece of music and realizes God is watching him. So I would agree with that totally. There are a lot of people I know who argue that God doesn't exist. They have to be touched by something they can't explain because they can explain everything with their intellect. It makes sense to me that mystery would be the thing to convert someone who is brilliant like that.
