Dr. Matthew Bunson – Child of Converts
Dr. Matthew Bunson’s mother was an Episcopalian who discovered a Catechism on the sidewalk in the Chicago snow, and began to read and pray her way into the Catholic Church. His father came from a Jewish background, and first encountered the Catholic faith as an Army medic in World War II. They both entered the Catholic Church in the same year, but didn’t meet until a decade and a half later. Dr. Bunson shares their dramatic stories, and also shares how the influence of his parents’ conversions has been formative in shaping his own Catholic faith.
