Michael Voris and His Conversion Story

By Anthony Perez

( During his talk at Don Bosco Technical College, Mandaluyong City in the presence of college students and those taking technical  vocational 15-month courses. The theme was: “St. John Bosco’s Challenge to the Youth:  Fight for Life, Live in Chastity.” , February 21,2014)

Michael Voris and his conversion story. I heard it yesterday, and I hope my paraphrasing does his story justice.

“I was working in media back then, and I was living in sin. My mother spent 15 years praying to God for me and my brother’s souls, and I would later learn that it came to a point that she prayed: Lord, do whatever it takes for them to repent.

Two weeks later, she was diagnosed with cancer in the stomach. Every night, she would wake up in agonizing pain, which she describes as a thousand pieces of broken glass churning in her stomach.

I asked my mother and father to move in with me from New York to Detroit so I can help take care of her. Later, my brother, who was in Texas, died of a heart attack. It was totally unexpected; he was very healthy, looked 20 years younger than his age, swam more than a mile everyday in the gulf. And yet he died. So when I got there, i was holding my brother Marshall’s body, and I called my mom. I said, mom, I am here with Marshall, do you want me to say anything to him?

My mother told me: yes, please tell him I love him so much, and we will see each other very soon.

It was at that point that I realized how much of a mess I made with my life, and how I should be changing from now on. Holding my dead brother, talking to my dying mother- it all made sense to me now, that everything I was taught as a child was true, but I just didn’t listen or pay any attention to the truth about our faith.

Some months later, my mom died. As I was about to close the lid of the casket, I said my final goodbye; I put my hand on top of where my mother’s womb was, and I promised her: This is it, mom. I will be a changed man, from now on. You gave your life for me, and your pain and suffering will NOT be in vain.

Some weeks later, I went to our parish, knelt before the statue of our lady, and said: My chastity is yours. I will live my life spreading the truth and beauty of our Catholic faith. And the rest is history.

There never was a day that went by that I didn’t pray to my mom and thanked her for all her sacrifices.”
