I love conversion stories. They give so much hope and give a renewed zeal for the faith. I myself am a convert to Catholicism. It is always a pleasure to speak with others who have made the journey.
Jacob Woods Convert From Atheism and Evangelicalism
I recently had the opportunity to interview Jacob Woods and discuss his journey into the Catholic church. He describes how he was once an atheist, became a youth pastor at a non-denominational church, and how he started taking steps to the catholic church. These steps include various debates and reading the early church fathers. Be sure to check out his Youtube channel titled “The Candid Catholic“.

Catholic Convert Quotes
Late have I loved You. O Beauty ever ancient, ever new, late have I loved you! You were within me but I was outside, and it was there that I searched for you. In my unloveliness I plunged into the lovely things which you created. You were with me, but I was not with you. Created things kept me from you; yet if they had not been in you they would have not been at all. You called, you shouted, and you broke through my deafness. You flashed, you shone, and you dispelled my blindness. You breathed your fragrance on me; I drew in breath and now I pant for you. I have tasted you, now I hunger and thirst for more. You touched me, and I burned for your peace.-St. Augustine
It is impossible to be just to the Catholic Church. The moment men cease to pull against it they feel a tug towards it. The moment they cease to shout it down they begin to listen to it with pleasure. The moment they try to be fair to it they begin to be fond of it. But when that affection has passed a certain point it begins to take on the tragic and menacing grandeur of a great love affair.-G.K. Chesterton
If Protestantism is true, then no one Church has the fullness of the truth; rather, all churches teach a mixture of true and false doctrine. So it makes sense to find one that agrees on enough of the truth that you deem essential and also that appeals to your tastes and preferences. In addition, as your tastes change and your church feels less relevant, it’s your right to find a different church that meets your needs. In the end, this makes being a follower of Christ more about us than about him.-Tim Staples
Revelation unveils that bride. The climax of the Apocalypse, then, is the communion of the Church and Christ: the marriage supper of the Lamb.- Scott Hahn
