Naumann interviews journalist and Catholic convert, Sohrab Ahmari, about his book, From Fire, by Water, that tells the story of his growing up in Iran and the intellectual and spiritual journey that lead him from Marxist atheism to the Catholic Faith.

"Sohrab Ahmari was a teenager living under the Iranian ayatollahs when he decided that there is no God. Nearly two decades later, he would be received into the Roman Catholic Church.

In From Fire, by Water, he recounts this unlikely passage, from the strident Marxism and atheism of a youth misspent on both sides of the Atlantic to a moral and spiritual awakening prompted by the Mass. At once a young intellectual’s finely crafted self-portrait and a life story at the intersection of the great ideas and events of our time, the book marks the debut of a compelling new Catholic voice."

Archbishop Naumann interviews Abby Johnson about the upcoming movie based on her life...

Unplanned 

In Theaters March 29, 2019

https://www.unplannedfilm.com/

Unplanned is the inspiring true story of one woman’s journey of transformation.

All Abby Johnson ever wanted to do was help women. As one of the youngest Planned Parenthood clinic directors in the nation, she was involved in upwards of 22,000 abortions and counseled countless women about their reproductive choices. Her passion surrounding a woman’s right to choose even led her to become a spokesperson for Planned Parenthood, fighting to enact legislation for the cause she so deeply believed in.
 

Until the day she saw something that changed everything, leading Abby Johnson to join her former enemies at 40 Days For Life, and become one of the most ardent pro-life speakers in America.

 

Take a friend and go see this movie.  It is truly life changing.
