An interesting question
Is Pope Francis actually converting anyone to Catholicism? The post is from November, 2014. But it's a good question. I mean, he's all about the outreach. Is it working? Are people coming back into the Church? Are they coming in for the first time? I'm not saying they aren't. I'm just curious to see some numbers. If so, then that would be a good thing, or a great first step at least. It's not as easy as it looks to find out, BTW. For every story I find saying "Catholic conversions on the rise!", I can find as many saying "Catholics leaving the Church", or "Catholics converting to Islam". So I'm curious if anyone has any ideas or figures to toss around.
