Consequently, I soon strayed far from the Church and my Catholic roots.
I experienced the joy of the truth a year after college, when the supposed incompatibility of faith, reason, and science led me on a journey in search of truth. In an unexpected yet unsurprising way, this journey led to God and the Catholic Church in which the fulness of truth subsists.
