GOD’S MIRACLE IN THE CONVERSION OF
A REBELLIOUS TEEN, DRUG ADDICT TURNED PRIEST.
A True Conversion Story.
Who’s that guy with the long hair in the picture Fr. Calloway is showing? It was he himself as a young adult immersed in the worldly pleasures!
Dear friends, I came upon this video which I think is a MUST WATCH as it is a demonstration of God’s love, mercy and goodness through Our Mother Mary’s loving intercession!
Fr. Donald Calloway tells us about his conversion story. He used to be a rebellious teen, having tried different types of drugs on the streets. Growing up in a non-Christian environment, Fr. Donald had a worldly life as a teen and young adult, having committed a lot of “shameful” actions as he himself testified.
As a teen living in Japan, he got into trouble with the Japanese authorities who kicked him out of the country. In the meantime, his mother met a Filipina in Japan. The Filipina Catholic friend introduced her to the Catholic faith and taught her the doctrine. Fr. Donald’s mom finally got converted to the Catholic faith.
Back in America, he entered various rehab clinics which seem to have not straightened him in life. Desperate and hopeless in the crucial point of his life, the young Donald picked a book about the Virgin Mary in his parent’s house. It was then when his process of conversion began.
Fr. Donald funnily recalls some hilarious encounters with the Filipinas he coincided with in the Church and also has some words of praise for the powerful faith, piety and example of the Filipina Catholics whom he met.
Dear friends, let us not lose hope, neither with ourselves nor with others. Through the loving intercession of Our Lady, let us ask God’s infinite mercy for the conversion of many people, beginning with ourselves. Let us not forget that CONVERSIONS DO HAPPEN WITH GOD’S GRACE, OUR LADY’S INTERCESSION AND MAN’S CORRESPONDENCE!
