Dr. Robin Pierucci: A Jewish Convert To The Catholic Faith

February 2, 2015 4 Comments

Robin was brought in a Jewish home. Her father said that they were “convenient Jews” rather than orthodox, reformed or conservative. Still Robin always talked to God. Sadly, she had to hide her faith because religion was not accepted in her social group. After high school she was active in a dance troop. One day she awoke and realized she had to move on. She entered medical school at Loyola University. Because she had to take religion classes, she took a class in Old Testament. Unbeknownst to her, the professor was Fr. Mitch Pacwa, SJ. This was the beginning of a journey that would lead her to to meet Jesus as her Messiah and his holy Catholic Church.

    I have a Jewish friend who converted 2 years ago. She has trouble with what St Paul says about Jews. I do not know how to help her.

      St. Paul was not anti-Jewish, any more than Jesus himself was. If you can provide some specifics, perhaps your friend can be helped.

    My friend is going to listen to EWTN on my recommendation. Please remove all my comments. including this one, It is better for my friend that way. I was unable to edit my comments so please remove them all including this one. I am sure my friend will enjoy hearing the conversion histories just as much as I do.

    In fact, she should read the end of the epistle to the Romans, where St. Paul talks about the salvation of Israel.
