A Conversion Prayer

Michel de Verteuil
Lectio Divina
with the Sunday Gospels  – Year A

Second Sunday after Christmas, 2014
"Lord, a conversion experience is always a home-coming:
- turning away from an addiction,
- being reconciled with our family,
- forgiving an old hurt,
- going to confession after a long absence.

Once we are there we look back and wonder at our resistance.
Here was something that we needed in order to live, and yet we did not recognise it;
the truth of ourselves demanded it, and yet we did not accept to do it.

Now, Lord, by your grace, we know that your Word has been made flesh
and found a home in us. Thank you, Lord."
