I found EWTN three years ago, when I moved in with my boyfriend during grad school. My mother and I had converted to Judaism when I was a teen. She had been everything from Evangelical Christian to Wiccan. I had married into a Seventh-day Adventist family and later became Buddhist.
Mother Angelica’s show was on when I was flipping channels. I thought, “Oh, a nun. How often do you see that?” It was a religious show that talked about compassion and wasn’t some Bible-banging, asking-for-money, sweaty white guy. I thought I was going to cry listening to her.
About a week later, a psychiatric client I worked with told me she was converting to Catholicism based upon seeing EWTN. We talked. Seeds were planted.
As a nonChristian with a huge chip on her should about Christianity, I loved EWTN. And still do!
