Video – Jews Converting, Salvation (2 of 2) – Roy Schoeman – Spring Marian Day 2019- CONF 481
Roy Schoeman gives accounts of other Jews than himself who have converted to Catholicism in the the last of two talks at the Marian Day on May 4th, 2019 at the Mother of the Redeemer Retreat Center in Bloomington, IN. He concentrates on the need to share the faith because most Catholics don't realize how rich we are with our saving doctrines and sacraments and that the conversion of the Jews is so very important in the salvation of the world.
