On this program, Rebecca Vitz Cherico (editor of Atheist to Catholic: Stories of Conversion) interviews people who have experienced conversion in their lives: non-believers and others who have converted to Catholicism, as well as Christians who have converted or “reverted” to a deeper form of faith. The aim of the show is to gain a deeper understanding of the many and varied ways in which God makes himself present to us in the Church, and a better sense of how all believers are called to conversion.
