Our Lenten Journey, March 15, 2019
Quotes of the Day:
“Why do we need to convert? Conversion is for an atheist who becomes a believer, or a sinner who becomes righteous. We do not need it, we are already Christian’ we think. And this is not true. If we think in this way, we do not realise that it is precisely because of this presumption – that we are Christians, good and doing the right thing – that we must convert from the supposition that all things considered, it is fine this way and we are not in need of any form of conversion.”
— Pope Francis, Angelus prayer, Dec. 7, 2015
“Each day holds a surprise. But only if we expect it can we see, hear, or feel it when it comes to us. Let’s not be afraid to receive each day’s surprise, whether it comes to us as sorrow or as joy It will open a new place in our hearts, a place where we can welcome new friends and celebrate more fully our shared humanity.”
“To become a Catholic is not to leave off thinking, but to learn how to think.”
― G.K. Chesterton, The Catholic Church and Conversion”
