The Great Discovery of this Honest Couple

2 12 2018

Ulf Ekman and his wife, Brigitta, were very successful Protestants, richly blessed by God and founders of the World of Life world wide network of churches that spans the world. From their native Sweden all the way to Russia with a strong following of more than 100,000 people. Yet, when they saw clearly that the Catholic Church is the true Church founded by Jesus Christ, they did a very honest thing. They joined the Catholic Church. This was  very unusual and even shocking, given that they were very anti-catholic. In fact, Ulf wrote very critical articles attacking Pope John Paul 2 during his visit to Sweden.

Yet when truth confronted them, they followed it and made the greatest discovery of their lives.
It all began when Brigitta came across a book of the life of St. Brigitta, her namesake. The only problem was that this was a Catholic Saint. More than slightly annoyed that a Catholic Nun could bear her name, nonetheless, she decided to read the book. The story would go on to open a flood gate of the history of the Church that they never heard about. In their book, “The great discovery” they attributed their great ignorance of Church history to the endemic fear and preconceived ideas about the Catholic Church often prevalent in Protestants circles that leads Protestant to read about what the Catholic Church teaches from books written by Protestants without bothering to read the book written by Catholic Church herself about what she teaches and holds to be true: Catechism of the Catholic Church.
The video below is worth 30mins of your time. It is the account of their journey by Ulf and Brigitta Ekman.
