Father John Zuhlsdorf was raised Lutheran in Minnesota. His conversion to Catholicism was set into motion after hearing a piece of sacred polyphony on the radio. Following his conversion, he felt the call to priesthood. Eventually he was ordained by Pope St. John Paul II on May 26, 1991. He is also a Catholic internet personality known as “Father Z.” Father Zuhlsdorf was a weekly columnist for The Wanderer, a national Catholic weekly. He has appeared on EWTN and the Fox News Channel. He is best known for his blog Fr. Z’s Blog (previously named: What Does the Prayer Really Say?), in which he comments on prayer translations, faith related question, and Church news. Fr. Z’s Blog is one of the most visited Catholic sites online. Father Zuhlsdorf resides and works in the Diocese of Maddison (in the state of Wisconsin).
