Everything changes

The process of conversion begins with genuine openness to change--to be open to the possibility that just as natural life evolves, so our spiritual life is evolving.... Each time you consent to an enhancement of faith, your world changes and all your relationship have to be adjusted to the new perspective and the new light that has been given you. Our relationship to ourselves, to Christ, to our neighbor, to the Church--to God--all change. It is the end of the world we have previously known and lived in.
