This presentation will explore the journey of conversion as falling in love with God. This journey takes place on all levels of our being: religious, moral, and intellectual. The life stories of Thomas Merton, Dorothy Day, and Oscar Romero help us reflect on how their experience of conversion sheds light on our own.
