Dr. Ronda Chervin: A Jewish Atheist Who Became A Catholic Christian

Ronda Chervin | August 22, 2005 No Comments

Ronda was raised atheist. Her family was Jewish but she was not told this when she was a child. She began to study Philosophy to find the meaning of life.

Once, while visiting Chartres Cathedral, she thought: How could something so beautiful be based on something that was non-sense?
