Series on Conversion by Fr Haggerty (1/8): Introduction, Chapter 1
There’s a reason that this book is required reading for all CFR postulants. It’s intense, and we’re ready to get into it in this series.
Because it’s all about Jesus. And conversion is at the heart of the daily experience of saying “yes” to Jesus.
Conversion isn’t something that happens “out there”; it’s not a personal project or a formation program. There’s nothing abstract about it. It’s a real encounter with the living person of Jesus Christ, and realizing we must turn away from ourselves and towards Christ. It can be terrifying, but we have to make a decision to allow Jesus in and change our lives.
A life of fidelity starts with the spark of conversion drawing us near to Jesus, and then us choosing to stay near to him, despite any temptation to remain in other things.
