THE HEART OF THE JOURNEY
In addition to the previously mentioned insights shared during the Christian Initiation gathering in Australia, Fr. Tony Chiera stressed that conversion is at the heart of the journey; “It is relationship that causes conversion. Each person does this differently in their own way. When we enter into a life-changing relationship, the world changes color.” What a beautiful message, one that both stimulates and inspires each of us to think beyond what is comfortable.
The conversion journey is an apprenticeship:
- We learn by doing,
- We learn by doing with others,
- We learn by doing with others and reflecting on that experience.”
It would be good for our own RCIA team to examine -“do we reverence the uniqueness of how people travel?” Does our parish as a whole?
