First, I want to ask your forgiveness for not posting lately. Between the birth of a precious new grand baby, some other personal concerns and preparing for conferences on consecutive weekends beginning with the Fatima Conference in Chicago on Friday, I haven’t had much time to post.
Below is my conversion story… more properly, reversion story. It has been around on CD for a while, but a number of people have asked that I make it available here.
I don’t particularly like talking about myself, but … as an old spiritual director admonished, I have an obligation to let others know how incredibly good God has been to me. In fact, this isn’t really so much about me as it is about Our Lord and His mother, and how they refuse to let even one lost sheep go without a fight.
It stops short of my awakening to tradition and my awareness of the heist that took place starting at Vatican II wherein our inheritance was stolen. Maybe I’ll add that some other day…
Thanks be to God. The grace to find the light of truth is a rare one today. Let us love Him unto death…!
Congratulations on the birth of your grandchild. God bless and protect him.
If more fathers only knew from the “get go” how precious their role is in the eyes of their children there would be less suffering in families. It has inspired me to see that some of us can be so blessed with a second chance at forgiveness.
Thank you for a touching story. It shows how we cannot predict the work of God, and we cannot know when he will decide to intervene in one’s life. It reminds me of a post on Mundabor’s blog, where he discusses a bit his own return to the Faith, and how blogs such as these may be instrumental in the return of the Faith and strengthening of the Faith, even in such tumultuous times. I am always happy to hear of these conversions and ‘reversions’.
Amen to that.
Almost everyone who is genuinely Catholic nowadays seem to be reverts what a war the devil has been permitted to wage. I reckon in Western Australia maybe 100-200 older people authentically kept the Faith it shows you how great the apostasy has been since 1960. I know one guy that attended the Novus Ordo for 25 years who gave up in the early 90s, could no longer attend it and stopped going to church completely. Later he discovered the Old Mass and everything made sense.
Later I will have time and look forward to listening, thanks Louie and God Bless you and your family.
Dear Mr Verrechio, I listened to all of your talk on your conversion. It was extremely edifying and encouraging. It resonates as only the truth can resonate, instructs as only the truth can instruct, consoles as only the truth can console. Your readiness to obey God’s call shows the way to others. Thank you very much for sharing God’s acting in your life and how we all ought to strive to develop a greater openness to God, a holy fear of the Lord. God bless you and your family.
The story is quite wonderful and touching. What was a bit of a shock, however, was hearing about Louie’s great love and devotedness to the Vatican ll Council documents. It doesn’t make sense. From a traditionalist POV, there are BIG problems with the Council documents regarding religious liberty and ecumentism.
Oh, my, that was beautiful!!!!
Denise, you must be new. The title of this blog began after a thorough study of the documents. It was intended to be very positive, but a funny thing happened . . .
Louie,thanks for your experience of your return to the one true faith.Yours is a most wonderful example to us all!I read your blog every day and i look forward to your research into the true documents of Vatican 11-not the heretical way it is viewed by modernists.God Bless. Philip Johnson.
If you’ll please click on the top bar of the main page of this blog, titled “Faith Formation,” then you should click on the “Fatih Formation Series 1-5.” This formation series is very much pro-Vatican ll documents, and they are for sale. Take a look for yourself.
I have to agree with Denise when it comes to being perplexed as to why Louis is still promoting these works of his which are coming from the angle of defending the documents of VaticanII as being clean of any confusions or ambiguities if we just allow ourselves to read them correctly. I really don’t understand Louis on this one.
Denise and Anastasia, the amazing part of the story is that all of his work on trying to defend VII made him see the errors inherent in some of the documents, and he realized that the Traditional people aren’t crazy after all. He lost all of his support from a very lucrative position in the NO world because he realized he could no longer defend it.
Dear anyone still perplexed about Louie’s current thoughts on his work on VII.
He talked about this from 50 seconds in, to minute 1:54 on the video interview with John Vennari ( Nov 5th post “Fatima Conference” )
