Three "conversions" for today

We've reached the culmination of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity on today's Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul, a good reminder that the grace of Christian unity requires "conversion" of each one of us. Not a change-of-religion conversion, but that progressive change-of-heart conversion that makes all the difference in the world.

And speaking of change-of-heart conversions, today is the first time that the March for Life is being held on the feast of the Conversion of St. Paul. This "coincidence" hints that we will make progress in bringing about a culture of life to the extent that we live--each of us--in a continual state of conversion, always "turning again"to the Lord, letting go of false gods (which do their best work when they put on a pious mask). Perhaps the best contribution we can make to the effectiveness of today's March is to go to Confession!

You can follow the Marchers on Twitter in real time; just search for the hashtag #marchforlife.
