July 8, 2013 No Comments

Matt Palmer grew up in Columbus, OH in a family of six – a great childhood in the sixties in a Christian home with Methodist roots.  Attending college, Matt moved away from practicing his faith,  but once graduated and relocated in Washington, D.C., he reconnected.  A year later, Matt found himself at Harvard in graduate school.  He grew spiritually through involvement in two para church organizations.  Subsequently returning to his hometown and settling into a business career in the early 1980’s, Matt met his wife to be.  He claims that the intercessions of his mother, her mother and the Mother of our Lord were instrumental in his conversion to the Catholic Church, some 15 years after their wedding.  Matt and Marcus discuss theological points of his journey.
