Melissa Zelniker-Presser – Convert from Judaism and Evangelicalism

August 23, 2017 3 Comments

Growing up in a tight-knit Jewish community, Melissa Zelniker-Presser knew almost nothing about Jesus or Christianity.  In college, she was befriended by enthusiastic evangelicals, and was excited to begin a relationship with Christ.  However, she still hungered for more, and when a friend gave her a biography of St. Edith Stein, Melissa knew she’d found a spiritual friend she could truly relate to.  That, and the similarities between the liturgy of the Mass and Jewish Passover services were enough to convince her to find a new home in the Catholic Church.

    Curious how this great interview was removed today.

    Melissa has a facility for cutting through to what is really important and this
    is greatly needed in these days where distractions abound. Truth demands that we focus our
    attention. Wisdom be attentive!

      For some reason, it was removed temporarily from the EWTN YouTube channel, which is where it’s embedded from- will replace the link as soon as it goes back up!
