Washington (CNN) – She went from atheist to Catholic in just over 1,000 words.
Leah Libresco, who’d been a prominent atheist blogger for the religion website Patheos, announced on her blog this week that after years of debating many “smart Christians,” she has decided to become one herself, and that she has begun the process of converting to Catholicism. According to Dan Welch, director of marketing for Patheos, Libresco’s post has received around 150,000 page views so far. - Read the rest.
How cool is that?
This is big. Really, really big. Susan Boyle big. Justin Bieber big.
You just know the Catholic Church is the true Church when the Libresco story goes viral. There's gotta be a script here someplace Barbara Nicolosi!
I dreamed a dream in time gone by
When hope was high
And life worth living
I dreamed that love would never die
I dreamed that God would be forgiving
Then I was young and unafraid
And dreams were made and used and wasted
There was no ransom to be paid
No song unsung, no wine untasted
But there are dreams that cannot be
And there are storms we cannot weather
I had a dream my life would be
So different from this hell I'm living
So different now from what it seemed
Now life has killed the dream I dreamed.
Seriously - prayers and best wishes for Leah Libresco. You ain't seen nothin' yet. You can become a saint now too. God bless you!
NB: You know what's really nice about this? She seems like a nice young woman too. Not like some of those former filthy, slutty, alcoholic converts. What? I'm just kidding.
