Leah Libresco gave a spirited talk on her journey to the truth, at the Crossroads Cultural Center, last evening in NYC.
Raised in an atheist home on Long Island, Leah graduated from Yale ’11 and was received into the Catholic Church in 2012.
The gift of her conversion is a terrific story fueled by debate among Christian friends, who she said gave her a “reason to be interested,” along with cold pizza, rounds of toasting, dollops of Lewis, Chesterton and McIntyre — and no doubt draughts of Spirit.
Leah said her “secular humanists” parents wanted to change the world, and that she shared their conviction but “needed to know that she was right.”
She mentioned the need for “constant conversion” allowing one to go from thinking “about God” to “thinking with God.”
