Fr. Robert Bengry: Change

Fr. Robert Bengry

There are some who suppose that a person can’t really change... that a leopard can’t change its spots as they say. In some ways it’s true, but with God all things are possible. Indeed, isn’t that what Christ does? I’m always struck by the transformative quality of an authentic encounter with Christ. For some that change is immediate and profound, for others it’s a change that is lived into day by day in time. Do you believe God can change you for the better? Do you think an encounter with Jesus changes you? Do you think the worthy reception of Christ, body, blood, soul and divinity, in the gift of the Holy Eucharist is transformative?

I do.
