Converted by the Blessed Sacrament, With the Help of St. Thérèse

The story of how an English lawyer became Catholic after adoration with Pope Benedict XVI.

"During Pope Benedict’s 2010 visit to Britain, an open-air Benediction of the Blessed Sacrament took place at London’s Hyde Park. As the Pope lifted the monstrance, and 80,000 people knelt in adoration of the Holy Eucharist, all London seemed to fall silent.

One woman, Kate Paulson, watched as the Vicar of Christ held aloft the monstrance, blessing London and the world with the Body, Blood, Soul and Divinity of Christ.

That moment was to change her life forever.

Kate had felt drawn to the Catholic Church for a number of years. And yet, despite two attempts at instruction, she had not been able to move from devout Anglicanism to Catholicism. All of that changed in an unexpected way during that unforgettable night with Pope Benedict XVI and a still more mysterious encounter with the relics of a saint."
