Read about the conversion of this great American, pro-life thinker here.
For anyone near Washington D.C., I highly recommend visiting the Catholic Information Center, first because Jesus is there, present in the tabernacle. Second, the staff is knowledgeable, courteous, and best of all, fully and faithfully Catholic! The store sells a fine collection of reading materials, sacramentals (rosaries, etc.), and religious art as well.
It has been interesting seeing the number of converts to the Catholic faith that have entered either directly or indirectly through the CIC, and I am thrilled to see Hadley Arkes's name added to this list.
Praise be Jesus Christ for pulling together in unity men of good will throughout the ages!
