Conversion Story

My family and I are in the process of joining the Catholic Church. We know that many will find our switch from “Born-again” Evangelicals to Catholics either curious, confusing, alarming, or some combination thereof. So I decided to tell our story. These are the 7 posts that narrate our “Long Road to Rome”.

Part 1: A Pontiff and a Prejudice Die

Part 2: Scorched Earth Policy

Part 3: Deep in History

Part 4: Carried Along by Liturgy

Part 5: The Communion of Saints

Part 6: The Gospel of Life

Part 7: “Securus Judicat Orbis Terrarum!”

  1. Thank you for sharing your journey with us, with such truth and dignity. I just found your blog through iMonk and am just so glad to hear how God has brought you Home! :)

    As a former “Calvinistic” Anglican, who also got deep in History, had a paradigm-shifting trip to Ireland, and had those same words of St Augustine, “securus judicat orbis terrarum” ringing in my mind – I can definitely relate!

    God bless and keep you, Fallon and little Michael. And thank you again! :)

    • Lee,

      Thanks so much for the kind words! I just read the “about” section of your blog, and can’t wait to read more! I deeply appreciate your comment that the best things in life are “Jesus, family, the Divine Liturgy of St. John Chrysostom, and chili dogs”… with lists like that, you’ll find yourself among friends here!

    I look forward to reading these. Protestants have a skewed view of Catholicism. I wish more protestants would read Aquinas. I don’t see myself converting, but I don’t your conversion should be seen as strange in any way. The division is sad.
