Join me in welcoming (and praying for) Leah Libresco, who recently announced that she was converting to the Catholic Church from an atheist background.
Two things I love about the interview below:
1. The truth of the Church's moral teachings attracted her. Too often, Catholics fail to share how wonderfully good the Church's moral teaching are; we wince to mention contraception and skirt away from that and other topics that might offend our listeners. Yet, the Church's moral teachings are beautiful and just as true as each of her doctrines...and just as attractive!
2. Even though Leah focused on the coherency of the Church's moral position, she describes the best thing about being Catholic as...the Eucharist. Being able to believe and receive Jesus in the Eucharist is the best thing that could ever be for anyone, anywhere, anytime. Leah gets it!
