Fr. Jay Kythe: A Hindu Who Became a Catholic Priest
Father Kythe was raised in New Orleans by immigrant Hindu parents from India. He attended Catholic schools but went to study hall with the Protestants during religion classes. In college he got mixed up in sex and drugs and began to hate God, becoming depressed and suicidal. The witness of a Catholic roommate, who invited him to Mass, led him to an encounter with the living God through Jesus Christ. Father Kythe was ordained a Catholic priest in 2002.
