I read a post from Sherry Weddell about Saint Jerome that underscored how conversion is a process. Saint Jerome was quite a complex person. He lived a wild life as a youth, became a Catholic, but did not really convert, according to Weddell’s post, until later. In fact, it was the bible that played an important part. “Ignorance of scriptures is ignorance of Christ.”
It causes me to think about how well I know Jesus. And it causes me to ask if I have really allowed Jesus to change my heart. Or, is it the case that all too often I simply go through the motions. Perhaps I need to pay more attention to the story of Saint Jerome. Becuase it is clearly the case I can know Jesus better each day.
