More on being "Born Again" and Catholic

I was born again in 1992, I received Jesus Christ into my life. I was led to His Church in 1996. The person of Jesus had never been real to me prior to 1992. I found Him in part by searching the Scriptures. "Whoever calls on the name of the Lord will be saved" it says I think in Romans. So I called on His name for the first time in 1992. My aunt, Lucille Baranko, a devout woman, a Secular Franciscan, had committed me to Our Lady since the beginning of my conversion. A few months after her death in 1995 I reverted to Catholicism. I believe she prayed both my mother and I back into the Church. We had been in a number of churches for a few years, mostly a Baptist church. I was even anti-Catholic for a time, following the teachings of Bartholomew Brewer and others. I actually talked to Bartholomew on the telephone once. I pray he someday makes his way back to the Church, as God was gracious to provide for me.
