Ongoing Conversion

{ Tags: \ May31 }

Ecclesia semper reformanda.  The Church needs always to be reformed.  This is in fact one of the things that  we need to realize both at the “community” level and at the personal level.  At the personal level, this “semper reformanda” is expressed in the idea of ongoing conversion.

There are several articles on the web that contain materials about ongoing conversion.  I am going to list some of them down in this blog:

  • Rev. James Dunning’s article in American Magazine entitled Conversion: Born Again and Again  is replete with different ways of explaining what “Conversion” means.  It can be a catechetical tool, but it can be material for spiritual reading.
  • Sacra Doctrina’s When Thou Art Converted is a blog post about “conversion” in the mind of the evangelicals contrasted with the Bible and the Reformed tradition (I am not sure whether the author is Catholic or mainline Protestant.)
  • Rev. Michael Moynahan’s sermon on “Ongoing Conversion” is may serve as a sample homily on the same topic.
  • Glen Argan’s “Penance: The Struggle of Ongoing Conversion” is  a commentary on the Catechism nn. 1422-1429.
  • Benedict’s Dharma is a medium for Christian-Buddhist dialogue.  There is a session where the topic is Christian renunciation, the essence of ongoing conversion.
