“…It is important, however, to realize that the change willed by God is not the change that indicates nonacceptance of us as we are but that change foreseen by a creative vision that can perceive as-yet unrealized potentialities in us. In God’s eyes there is no limit to what we can become… We often think of conversion as being a change from a life of sin to a life of virtue; more often it is a matter of being called forth from our harmless comfort zone to take a less-traveled road into strange and unfamiliar territory…”
— Michael Casey OCSO, The Road to Eternal Life: Reflections on the Prologue of Benedict’s Rule.
As with all Michael Casey’s books, this too is a wonderful gift. I heartily recommend it.
