As a convert, people ask me the question and I still don't know how to answer it properly. You can't give the answer in just one sentence. If I'm pressed for time I simply say, "Well, I came to believe that it is the one true religion instituted by our Lord Jesus Christ and so I prayerful sought to enter the Catholic Church." However, this hardly does the question justice.
I recently had the pleasure of being interviewed by Elizabeth Campisi of Immaculate Heart Radio for her show "Why I'm Catholic" which aired today (Friday, Feb 11 at 7AM PST).
It will encore again on Sunday, Feb 13 at 6PM PST.
You can listend to the show or download the mp3 recording of the interview here: "Why I am Catholic" with Taylor Marshall.
We talk about how I became a Christian when I was about nine, how I became an Episcopal clergyman, and how I became a Catholic with all the details. I talk about going to Holy Mass with Pope Benedict while I was still not Catholic, and my illuminating "aha" moment with a Cardinal in Rome. I also explain how I renounced the Episcopal priesthood to become a Catholic. We also talk about Mary, matrimony, priesthood, etc. Here's the full show.
Elizabeth is a great interviewer, and I was honored to be her guest.
