The website,WhyImCatholic.com, shares the conversion stories of those who have come to the Catholic faith from all walks of life. From agnostics and atheists to Protestants and Anglicans, the site tells the story of why people choose to come home to the Catholic Church.
The various stories, written by the converts themselves, come from the leaders of the Catholic online community and everyday Catholics alike. The backgrounds of each author show the diversity of the Catholic faith and teach us that all who knock on the door of the Catholic Church are welcome.
Reading how each individual came to the Catholic faith is both inspiring and educational. The touch of inspiration comes from the challenges they faced as they explored the beauty of the Catholic faith, and the educational knowledge comes from the lessons they learned along the way.
WhyImCatholic.com is not limited to just Christians coming from other denominations. There are stories from atheists and agnostics that learned how the Catholic faith was not in opposition to science and other views. There are stories from Hindus, Buddhists, and Jews that found Christianity for the first time. There are even stories from Catholic "reverts" that have returned to the Church after being gone for some time.
If you have been considering whether or not to join the Catholic Church, WhyImCatholic.com will share the stories of real people who have once traveled the same road. You can even find my story on the site and learn how a college football game changed my life. One visit to this site may be the inspiration you need to take the next steps toward Catholicism.
