Converting to Catholicism: No Easy Task for a Protestant Pastor – Here’s Why… 

Comment: 

Keith Nester, the above speaker, made me wonder just how many people turn away from the Church due to the obstacles identified in the video. Happily, Mr Nester managed to get help to overcome the difficulties which he encountered, but how many others don’t move beyond initial enquiries or experiences, discouraged because of the Catholics they meet?  My favourite convert is a friend who became a Catholic after years of reading about Fatima.  What about you – any interesting conversion stories, whether your own, perhaps a favourite saint-convert,  or the conversion  of someone you know, family or friend?    We need a break from Covid and tyrannical governance so get typing those conversion stories and related issues – and that’s an order!  😀  

Catholic Education Week Scotland – More Bluff, Bluster & Baloney…

From 23rd February to the 1st March 2014 Scotland’s   Catholic schools and parishes will celebrate how they support children and young   people to ensure that they are “Shining the Light of Faith” in   their daily lives.  This theme has been inspired by the first Encyclical of Pope   Francis: ‘Lumen Fidei’ (The Light of Faith).

Archbishop Philip Tartaglia said: “During   Catholic Education Week, we can all do that little but more to “shine the  light of faith” in our lives. In doing so, not only do we respond  positively to our own vocation, we become lights for our young people, our hope  for the future”.
