Br. Bernard Knapke, O.P., on Being Transformed by Grace

"Our Lord Jesus Christ demands nothing less than a total transformation of our lives. At the inauguration of his earthly ministry, he proclaimed, 'The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent, and believe in the gospel' (Mk 1:15). We must undergo a moral (repent!) and mental (believe!) transformation. Our will must conform to the 'one . . . who is good' (Mt 19:17) and our intellect to the one who is 'the truth' (Jn 14:6). This demand, however, is not reducible to Kantian moralism or Socratic metanoia. The difference between the Teacher's call to transformation and that of any other teacher is the reality of grace."

In a recent commentary, Brother Bernard Knapke, O.P., reflected on the reality of grace as God's love at work in us and through us.
