  • That is so beautifully put. Sitting here at my little desk at the rectory for almost four years has taught me that I am evangelized far more than I evangelize, that I am converted more than I would ever convert. And as with all things where God is concerned – which means ALL things – I am loved so much more than I could ever love.
