"Charity gave me the key to my vocation. I understood that the Church had a Heart and that this Heart was burning with love. I understood that Love comprised all vocations, that Love was everything, that it embraced all times and places...in a word, that it was eternal! My vocation, at last I have found it...My vocation is Love!"

Conversion


Conversion means turning from ourselves and what would lead us away from God and returning to Christ, a dynamic which the New Testament calls metanoia. Conversion involves the whole person in a lifelong, life-changing process that is inspired by the Holy Spirit. True conversion is marked by daily prayer and a commitment to Christ that guides our every thought, word and deed.
Conversion, however, is not simply individual reconciliation with God to the exclusion of our neighbor. “Conversion is incomplete if we are not aware of the demands of the Christian life and if we do not strive to meet them,” the pope [John Paul II] writes, citing 1 John 4:20: “He who does not love his brother whom he has seen, cannot love God whom he has not seen.”
--Archbishop Wuerl
