Conversion stories make up the core of “The Journey Home,” a program aired weekly on EWTN. Roger Dubin, a parishioner at Sacred Heart in Prescott, shared his story on the Nov. 9 episode.

It began 10 years ago around the time of Pope Benedict XVI’s election. Like St. Paul, Dubin said it was sudden and shocking. Both sides of his family were Russian Jews, but his dad wasn’t comfortable celebrating Judaism and insisted the family follow mainstream culture by celebrating Christmas. Dubin’s personal reading often had to do with God.

The hour-long program reveals the details and the rest.

Regarding Catholics, Dubin said, “It was something about the Catholics. I admired them because they had been doing the same thing for so long.”
