Pope’s quotes: Conversion

A quote from Pope Francis:

“'Why do we need to convert? Conversion is for an atheist who becomes a believer, or a sinner who becomes righteous. We do not need it, we are already Christian' we think. And this is not true. If we think in this way, we do not realise that it is precisely because of this presumption – that we are Christians, good and doing the right thing – that we must convert from the supposition that all things considered, it is fine this way and we are not in need of any form of conversion.”

-- Angelus prayer, Dec. 7, 2015
