I have always been a big fan of our former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich. Recently he has given me even more reason to love him.
Newt is one of the thousands of people that will be entering the Catholic Church this Easter! His conversion has gone widely unpublicized, except for a few speculations made by Catholic bloggers - most notably AmP.
This story has filled me with so much hope for the Republican Party! Not only is the new face of the RebP, Bobby Jindal, a convert to our Church, but now we can all rejoice in seeing one of the oldest and most trusted members of the Party joining in at the Communion table as well!
During this Lenten season, let's all remember to pray for out RCIA brothers and sisters. Catholic Converts are always some of the most faithful.
