Paul Abbe's Conversion Story
on Carolina Catholic
For our first March show, Carolina Catholic chats with Paul Abbe, Director of Adult Religious Education at St. Mark Catholic Church and a former Lutheran pastor who converted to Catholicism.
In this show, we learn about Paul’s upbringing in a devout Lutheran family in Iowa, his years in the United States Air Force, his work as a Lutheran pastor here in NC, and how his deep yearning for the truth of Christ led him to begin his journey home to the Catholic faith. In this fascinating interview, we learn about the reasons Paul began to challenge the pillars of the Reformation and how his deep study of Catholicism led him to the Catholic Church.
This show will air the first two weekends of March, Saturdays at 11 am and Sundays at 6 pm.
Carolina Catholic: Salud Hondu and its annual fundraiser, One Cup of Tea

Carolina Catholic's March for Life show
with Father Paul Scalia and Father Christopher Murphy
For our first February show, I was joined by Christine Vayo as we traveled to DC for the 44th annual March for Life and got the opportunity to visit with Christine's cousin, Father Christopher Murphy, and his friend, Father Paul Scalia, both of the Diocese of Arlington. Father Scalia is the son of former Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia; in this show, we talk about his father's legacy and the homily Father Scalia gave at his dad's funeral. In addition, both priests talk about the challenge of sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with clarity in charity in a nation divided by so many issues. Both priests commented on how important it is to witness to the truth of Christ clearly but with a loving and kind heart.
The show has aired for the month but can be listened to here.
