Conversion always comprises a confrontation and an embrace. A rejection and a welcome. A refusal and a submission. We must at the reception of grace and the divine light,turn aside from what we have always known, what we have always accepted, what we have always believed to be true. A stripping of falsity must occur. A removal of the masks that through the years, we have covered ourselves in. An emptying that leads to fullness. A renunciation to a share in the divine nature.
