Inspiring Story

Given that a large percentage of my readers are from the British Isles, I hope they do not mind my posting this. What follows is the story of a man who grew up in Northern Ireland, whose home was bombed by violent pro-English partisans, who became a devoutly violent IRA operative, who studied Marx, who attempted to assassinate English soldiers, and who spent six years in prison, where he returned to the Lord by the grace of the Holy Spirit and by the aid of a missionary priest. His retelling of reading Scripture and entering into long, meditative prayer reminds me of St. Isaac the Syrian's regimen.
Even if you cannot watch it all in one go, the story is well worth your time.
