Randy Ory: Revert from the Church of Christ

Background: / /

April 22, 2013

New Orleans native, Randy Ory, speaks of growing up in Louisiana – a place very Catholic in its culture and its practice.  Randy attended Catholic schools through twelfth grade and was very devoted to his faith.  He shares how he gradually moved into Protestantism, eventually joining and being active in the Church of Christ for an eleven year period.  Questions began to arise, however, so he started studying on his own, particularly the early Church Fathers.  Ultimately, the understanding in his head would converge with the yearnings in his heart.  Both he and his wife returned to the church of their youth – the Catholic Church.  Today, Randy is in the process leading to, God willing, the permanent diaconate.

    In many ways Mr. Ory’s story reflects mine. Reading the early church fathers enlightened me to the deficiency of Sola Scriptura.

    Congratulation in advance for becoming a Catholic Deacon.
