Doug was brought in a Catholic family. As a young man he led a secular life. He met Christ through a group of Evangelical Friends, a branch of the Quakers. While attending a seminary, he met up with a Catholic childhood friend who responded to his objections to the Catholic faith knowledgably and with love. The friend asked him, “What is the pillar and foundation of truth?” Doug said, “The Bible.” His friend showed him that the Bible in fact says otherwise, starting him on his journey back to the Catholic Church.
