The Rosary Converts Protestant Pastor To Happy Catholic

This the Mary at Christ the King in Ann Arbor- My new church!

I was a third-generation pastor in a protestant church. I grew up in a very anti-Catholic family.

When I was 57 years old, I received a rosary in the mail because of a donation I made to a charitable organization, not knowing they were Catholic. I thought those beads were like a Catholic Ouija Board and was afraid to have the rosary in my house for fear of offending God.

But I became curious and asked God to show me if these beads were, in fact, evil. I was reading the instructions on how to pray the Rosary on the internet and a powerful, distinctly female presence came into the room and spoke three things to my spirit:
1. You don't know me but I have always known you.
2. I know everything about you. (But not in a condemning way).
3. I love you.

You could almost reach out and touch the love in the room, it was so strong. I have NEVER felt so loved in my life, even though I have had many precious times with Jesus in prayer.

I began to pray the rosary regularly and asked Jesus to help me with all the doctrinal differences I had with the Catholic church. All my questions have been answered, and I came into the Church this year, at age 59.

I know Mary has had me by the hand since I was baptized at age 9 and has used many things to bring me into the true church, chiefly, the Rosary.

A prayer that strengthens
by: S.T. Almeida

Happy to read the testimony. In recent years, I've begun to say the rosary. If only more people understood its significance and that it is a meditative prayer centered on Christ and events in the New Testament, the world would be a better place.

Wow! God is so perfect! Sending his Mother to pray for us... I have had a conversion too, but I was already Catholic. I cannot believe the grace in my life - the only way I have been able to be strong...I am such a sinner. God Bless you and may you lead many people to conversion! Catholics and non-Catholics! :)

Congrats for becoming a Roman Catholic and what Mary said to you was very touching. Just yesterday I heard a priest speak preachers may come and go but the Catholic church founded by Christ remains forever.

Welcome To The Church
by: christopher

I am a newcomer to this site, but a "cradle" Catholic - I would rather not tell you how many years, but believe me, it's been quite a few.
It is wonderful to read of your conversion to the Religion and to the Rosary. Barbara, that feeling of love you experienced the first time you checked out the Rosary, can be felt every time you say the Rosary, or just contemplate Mary, or say an Ave Maria [Hail Mary]. Welcome to my Family, the Catholic Church. For all the failings of some of its members, some of whom proved all too human, the Church is the only place I want to be until I [hopefully] come face to face with Jesus.

Fourth Rosary Promise
The rosary will make virtue and good works flourish, and will obtain for souls the most abundant divine mercies. It will draw the hearts of men from the love of the world and its vanities, and will lift them to the desire of eternal things. Oh, that souls would sanctify themselves by this means.
