Time examines Newt Gingrich’s conversion

Catholic World News - August 17, 2009

Gingrich, who was baptized by Archbishop Donald Wuerl of Washington at a ceremony attended by Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, attributes his conversion to the grandeur of Catholic worship, the influence of his wife, and the Church’s intellectual tradition. “When you have 2,000 years of intellectual depth surrounding you,” he said, “it’s comforting.”
