Sean Chapman: Revert from Secularism
August 25, 2014
Sean was raised in a nominally Christian church hopping family. His father was Episcopalian and his mother Catholic. Sean was baptized Catholic and had his first confession but was not raised in the Church. Even so, he knew that God is real and personal, though he didn’t have much use with organized religion. He had a hunger for God but he wanted to get to him on his own and on his own terms. In high school, Sean began his journey back to God through an introduction to the great philosophers. Unfortunately, at the same time, he was introduced to eastern mysticism and the New Age. After a long journey and some frightening experiences, Sean was led by the Holy Spirit to submit to God and Jesus Christ on God’s terms, leading him home to the Catholic Church.
