|We are all converts|

Written by Br. Matthew Augustine, OPAn occasional commentor at our little blog, Tom from Disputations, responding to a bizarro anti-convert screed in Mark Shea's comboxes, posted this wonderful qoute from the Dominican, Cardinal Cottier:
I had the pleasure of meeting the cardinal on a trip to Rome last summer. It was at the Feast of the Translation of the Relics of St. Dominic, which is celebrated as the main feast of St. Dominic in Rome. Also there was the new theologian of the Pontifical Household, Fr. Wojciech Giertych OP. Both stuck me as prayerful and humble men. That feastday in Rome ranks as one of the best days of my life. Short of my first profession of vows, nothing before or since has done more to deepen my identity as a Dominican. Veritas!
