We are not converted

copyright creative-spiritual-directions.com light
Week 2 Lent  Today’s Scriptures  Mic 7:14-15, 18-20   Lk 15:1-3,11-32

 

We  are  not converted

Only once in our lives

But  many times  and

This endless series of

Large and small

Conversions,

Inner revolutions,

Leads to our

Transformation 

In Christ

But while we may have

The generosity to

Undergo one or two

Such upheavals, we

Cannot face the necessity

Of further and greater

Rendings of our inner-self,

Without which we

Cannot  finally 

Become free!

 

Thomas Merton. “Life & Holiness”
Herder & Herder, NY:1963. p.159
