I am now over 60, unbaptized, and have never been a member of any church. I was at one time an
atheist. Practiced occultism to a certain degree. Finally became interested in
the Bible 25 to 30 years ago. I became convinced of its authenticity and the
truths of prophecies. I listened to many conservative fundamentalist protestant
preachers on radio and T.V. and believed in their teachings of saving through
grace and that every word in the Bible, including miracles, is the Divine
Revelation of God. At this time, I married a Catholic widow, who
has been devout her entire life. She was very distressed with my lack of desire
to become baptized. I didn`t believe I was worthy of Heaven, with or without
baptism. Until recently I was completely disillusioned with the Catholic
religion, with the early Popes, who were kings, the inquisition and the biblical
prophecies of the Antichrist. I didn`t believe in sacramentals, Rosaries and the
Sacraments. I did believe in prayer however. In spite of this I agreed to take a
course on becoming a Catholic. At the conclusion I was further away from
believing in the Church than before. The watering down of the Bible with each
person allowed to judge for himself whether to accept or reject the Miracles
[mentioned in the Bible], didn`t coincide with my beliefs. The poor dress codes
of the Catholic Church-goers as opposed to many protestant church-goers was
another stumblingblock. At this time I was ready to join a fundamentalist church
to be baptized.
In the meantime
we happened to hear the messages from Bayside with Veronica Lueken on radio. We
agreed to get messages and read it with the same spirit in which I originally
read the Bible, prove me herewith. If anything were to contradict the Bible, we
would stop getting them. We ordered Roses book II, after starting to read that,
couldn`t wait to order the rest of the books and tapes, crucifixes and medals.
The messages contained everything that I thought is wrong with the world with
the music, movies, morals, T.V., radio, newspapers, E.R.A., gay rights, etc. The
messages spared no one in their criticism of the modern trends in the Church and
in society in general. With the messages of reverence, prayer, penance, Bible
reading and remaining in the Church as an example, I thought it covered just
about everything one needs to know to trust their eternity upon.
I have been
blessed with a wonderful wife who has been ever an inspiration to me. Now the
only goals in life are taking care of her, getting baptized as soon as possible
and living as near as possible to the directions in the Bible and in the
messages from Bayside.
I just found out
that I will be baptized in October.
I believe that my
wife’s prayers led me to the one source that could convert me to Catholicism.
I attribute my conversion to the messages from
Jesus and Mary at Bayside through Veronica Lueken.
