Great news!  Many Catholic dioceses are reporting record converts to the Catholic faith!  As you may know, adults are received into the Catholic Church during the Easter Vigil liturgy.  They receive the Sacraments of Initiation which are Baptism, Confirmation and Holy Eucharist.  These leave an indelible seal on the soul.  Some are attributing this to the “Francis effect” which is often mentioned in the media.

The news comes at a time where the Catholic Church is under attack for the infiltration of sexually disturbed men into the priesthood who have abused minors.  Moreover, the corruption on the part of clergy and religious had added to people being turned off from Catholicism.  In light of this, secularists and atheists have been claiming victory with cries that the Church is disappearing.  The news of these record conversions is a sign of hope that the Church is alive and well and will thrive on despite whatever attacks come, whether from within or without.
