Stil Life with Homemade Birthday Card -- Berkeley USA, October 2012

“Conversion is a dynamic process, a way of being meant to remain active. It is a ‘tropism’: we turn toward God the way a plant turns towards the sun. Change of religions may bring about an important shift in focus, but it does not exhaust the whole meaning of conversion…. Because all are called to conversion, the conversion of others matters to me, and mine to them. The conversion of sinners is a necessary prelude to the communion of saints.”

– Le père Christian de Chergé, OSCO (d. 1996, Algérie)
