Father Ernie Davis, a former Episcopalian, has started a new blog called “How Can I Keep From Singing?” and one of his first posts is Why I Became Catholic. I’m a huge fan of conversion stories. This is a really good one. Hope you enjoy it as well.
People often ask, “Why did you become a Catholic?” My short answer is, “Because I finally realized I wasn’t.” For an Anglican or an Episcopalian, that answer might make sense. They might not agree, but they can understand it. Catholics may be mystified by it.
I loved the Episcopal Church, and being a priest was all I ever wanted to be. It took me a long time to accept it and admit it, but it’s true.
Please go read the rest here. It’s definitely worth it.
