    I spoke with a Jehovah's Witness once a week for about a year, on the phone because of covid, going over the JW lessons on the computer and explaining to her my Catholic faith, which she left 25 years ago, and encouraging her to recall her faith. We left on cordial terms after she realized that there was no way I was going to become a Jehovah's Witness when I had the healing graces from the Eucharist, Confession, and my Catholic faith. When we said our goodbyes, I told her that I was sad that she left her Catholic faith. She thanked me for our time together.
