Show Notes

In this episode of The Cordial Catholic, I'm joined by Fr. Lawrence Lew, OP, a Catholic convert with an incredible story to tell!

Fr. Lawrence grew up in a Bible-based church with nothing but a Scripture verse on the wall but a deep understanding and appreciation for the Bible. When he encountered his first Catholic Mass he immediately recognized the biblical roots – the Book of Revelation, taking place before his eyes!

From there, Fr. Lawrence set out to intellectually disprove Catholicism only to wind up convincing himself of the truths of the faith and becoming Catholic himself.

It's a great story told by a wonderful storyteller and you're going to love it!
