How Pope John Paul II changed my life – Jennifer Fulwiler, WaPo

Wow.. What an incredible conversion story…

The first time I took notice of Pope John Paul II was at his funeral. I was an atheist, as I had been for the duration of his pontificate, and I sat with my husband, a non-practicing Baptist, to watch the coverage. We hadn’t planned to tune in for the event, but both of us were intrigued by the enormous world response.

Just a few months after the funeral, a series of events led me to question atheism for the first time in my life, and I began to research religion and spirituality. My husband joined me in my search, and we were shocked to find that our investigation pointed us in the direction of the Roman Catholic Church (the only thing we’d previously had in common in terms of religion was that we were both anti-Catholic).
