A Request

I have always been interested in belief formation, and specifically, in how people come to a religious commitment-- and specifically with that, of course, how people come to a commitment to the Catholic faith. I have read a lot about this in the past, and I even went as far as putting together a book proposal on a book about conversions (which was, alas, not accepted).

Right now I am contemplating writing something (not a book!) about how people in Ireland, in our day, come to accept (or to get serious about) the Catholic faith.

So I am interested in accounts of how anybody (of any age, and whether they were cradle Catholics or not) came either to accept the faith, or to a personal commitment to it. As short or as long as you'd like.

I think it's important to know what draws people, in our time and place, to the Catholic faith, for purposes of evangelisation.

You can either email me at (and you know, you can ALWAYS email me about anything, I like emails) or you can leave it in the comments here. I won't use anyone's name or identifying information if I do write something on this subject.
